What do other writers think of Novice to Novel?
Other authors have said the following about our free novel writing course:
“The course is well-designed into bite-sized modules with great examples and options for additional reading/exploration. All the modules I completed gave me a lot to think on, and I feel so much more prepared to write my novel than I did before I started the Novice to Novel program. It’s a treasure and I’m glad it was recommended to me (by another local writer in my community).” – Ann Mungmode
“I recently received my last ‘novice to novel’ email which I started a year ago as a result of sending a script to a developmental editor. It basically needed restructuring. I saw this as a great opportunity to now learn the craft of writing as I knew I enjoyed putting a book together even as a complete novice. In one of my researches I came across writingtipsoasis.com. The 52 week email structure appealed to me as I wanted this book process to be one defined by growth and not time. What an amazing journey, I am still not finished but the weekly emails have kept me going and learning as I negotiated life and all my foibles. I’m not far off finishing and it’s a far better book because of the last 52 weeks. The weekly learning and encouragement emails were invaluable.” -Ann Muir
“I just wanted to say thank you so much for this free course. I am enjoying it. It is a wonderful course and has proved valuable. Although I’ve been writing for a long time for other people and am now ready to submit a manuscript to a literary agent this course has improved my skills and sharpened up the manuscript.” – Mel Molloy
“For each of the last 52 weeks, I have received a lesson in crafting a novel from Georgina Roy—only a page or two but packed with guidance, kindness, and information. It’s been an exciting journey to discover what it takes to get it done. I have appreciated all the lessons and will put them to good use.” – Lyn Ayre, author
“These lessons were great to learn by and helped in writing my book. I look forward to publishing my book soon.” – Krystal Treadwell
“The course has been an amazing one since the beginning. I find it so worthy. What I like most about the course is the clarity of the writing coach, Georgina Roy, who makes sure the mentees really understand the lessons.” – Awal Babatunde
“Well organized and easy to follow. Gives one an ongoing sense of accomplishment and the idea that this time there is a light at the end of the tunnel.” – Walter Biederer
“Thank you very much for your valuable resources. I’m a short story/flash fiction writer but I still found the lessons helpful. Thanks again for your generosity.” – Marilyn Leuer
“The content is very well-received; the material is concise, yet extremely informative; the self-paced format affords room to adapt each weekly lesson to any work in progress; and the step-by-step guidance allows the self-paced student to transfer each lesson to any writing effort.” – C. Elyse
“I’ve been liking the course a lot. It’s helped me to be more consistent with writing and while also being aware of what to avoid. I’ve also found it to be a good refresher for me when I feel stuck with my writing. I like that each weekly topic goes into elaborate detail and I feel fortunate to have such a resource available to me for free.” – Neema Wala, author of CAVIN-UNIT
