The four parts of successful novel-writing
LiveHacked.com is all about writing and living well—and especially how they combine and intertwine. That means that not only is this course focused on how to plan and write a novel, it’s also going to show you some helpful ways to stay motivated and productive during the process! The course is split into four sections, or parts, guiding you step-by-step through finding an idea, planning and outlining the novel, the writing and editing process, and staying productive and motivated. Here’s a little more information about each one:
Part 1: Finding and Developing an Idea
Finding ideas is paramount to writing a great book, but many people forget that ideas don’t just show up out of thin air! You need to work consistently and constantly, writing out ideas as often as they come to you. Sure, there are tricks, tips, and guidelines to creating ideas that rock, and you’ll find them listed here. But a great idea is nothing until it’s actually implemented—and we’ll show you how to take an idea from concept to manuscript in no time!
Part 2: Planning and Outlining
Planning, outlining, and structuring a novel are the building blocks of great books. There are as many ways to properly outline and plan a fiction novel as there are fiction writers. The Fiction Writer’s Guide to Writing Fiction is one way of planning that really works. Rather than relying solely on creative impulse, random free-writing sessions, or other less-structured methods, this planning and outlining guide is based on years of research, teaching, and guidelines culled from the greatest writing teachers, novelists, and fiction authors of the modern age. You’ll learn how to write a novel in “two sentences,” use the 3- and 4-Act Play methods of plot structuring, and a simple tactic to develop characters without headaches.
Part 3: Writing and Editing Your Novel
Obviously, you’ll want to actually write the book once you’ve gotten it planned, outlined, structured properly. In this course, you’ll learn some helpful tips and secrets of best-selling fiction writers that will get you from the first scene to “The End.” The writing process is broken down into manageable chunks, letting you focus on the plot, characters, and story, instead of trying to make one scene lead to the next. And when you’re done, we’ll show you a few techniques used by pro editors to get their book polished, finalized, and ready for print!
Part 4: Staying Motivated
Of course, writing a book is a demanding and time-intensive task. Some authors struggle for years to write their first novel, while others can pop out books 10 times a year. Their methods may be the same, but their secrets to staying productive and motivated while they work through the 100,000 words are worlds apart. In The Fiction Writer’s Guide to Writing Fiction, you’ll learn tactics practiced by seasoned veterans the business world, writing world, and other professional industries to stay constantly motivated on reaching their end goal. The methods you’ll learn aren’t just going to help you write your novel, either—they’re “tricks of the trade” that you can use to finish any project, whether it involves writing or not!
Putting it all together
Each of these four parts enhances the others. Together, they’re much stronger than they would be if any of the parts were missing. The Fiction Writer’s Guide to Writing Fiction is a free 10-part course and ongoing newsletter that’s delivered via email. Each week you’ll get a new lesson on one of the four parts. The lessons go in order, taking you from concept to manuscript, but you can use any of the methods outlined at any point in the game. Again, that means that you can use these lessons regardless of if you’re just starting your writing journey or if you’re finishing your third book. You’ll get lots of links to other helpful content, both on LiveHacked.com’s website and throughout the web, but with a new frame that will help you “connect the dots” and start putting this advice to work in your own writing.
