When you’re writing a novel one step at a time, it’s best to start from the very beginning.
In this case, the very first week of our year-long novel-writing challenge will be spent getting your ideas together. Then, learning the basics of how to make your first chapter stand out—that is, what should be included, and what certainly shouldn’t be included!—as well as the best way to bring it to a close so that your readers can’t wait to start in on Chapter Two.
In just 30 days, you’ll have a finished first chapter.
It’s a first chapter you can share with anyone. Getting people interested in your story—and rooting for your success—will give you a huge boost as you write the rest of your novel.
So stop by, introduce yourself, and get settled. You’ll be a part of a group of writers who have only one thing on their minds: finishing an excellent novel this year!
