About the course
All professional writers get asked the question 'Where do you get your ideas from?' In this week we’ll be drafting and developing ideas; learning to read as a writer, establishing good writing habits; and fleshing out concepts through titles and outlines. We’ll also be creating convincing characters that will excite readers. We'll build a character, discuss successful characters, brainstorm how to develop your characters, and think about how character and plot interact - an issue that lies at the very heart of a strong narrative. We'll talk about what makes a page-turner rather than a series of events, introduce you to the idea of archetypal plots, and look at the roles of pacing, hooks and conflict. Writing a novel means making a series of decisions about things like structure, point of view, genre, setting, time and place. We'll look at what the implications of these choices might be for your first novel.
