Welcome!

So you want to write the next great American novel. You want to be on the New York Times Best Seller list. You want to create a work of art so great that it touches and inspires the world.

Maybe an idea has been brewing in your mind these last couple of months, but you don’t know how to get it from your brain onto paper. Or, maybe you’ve gotten a couple of notes together and a basic story outline, but you can’t seem to find the motivation to finally start writing.

Regardless, you’ve decided this is the year you beat Nanowrimo once and for all.

But those pesky doubts are starting to creep in:

  • Where am I going to find the time?
  • What if my writing sucks?
  • I can barely organize my life, how am I going to organize a novel?

Hi, I’m Jade and I’m here to inform you that you CAN and you WILL beat Nanowrimo this year. Together, we’re going to participate in TWO Nanowrimo Camps. (Yes, Nanowrimo does Nanowrimo Camps in both April and July with word-count goals between 30 and 1,000,000.) Then, we’re going to participate in and WIN Nanowrimo in November.

What am I going to do?

I’m going to show you how I pre-write, how I outline, how I plot, how I create my holy grail, my Story Bible.

Together we’re going to craft relatable characters with motivations, struggles, goals, and real personalities. We’re going to delve into novel tense and point-of-views, world building, and debate the pros and cons of prologues.

I’m going to show you how to write an awesome first draft that will draw your potential readers in, and then keep them in, by following up with tension and really helping them connect with your story.

Finally, we’re going to delve into editing and revising. I’m going to show you how to polish up your novel before releasing your baby out into the world.

And the best news is whether you start with me right from the beginning, or jump in around the middle, or the end, you can always access archived articles year after year. I look forward to your comments, your opinions, and your voices as we craft this little writing nook together.

-Jade
