Congratulations! You have written a draft of a novel. You accomplished what many writers merely talk about and dream of doing – you have written an entire story from beginning to end. When you finish celebrating, it is time to revise: to re-envision and rewrite what you’ve written into a novel that agents, editors and readers will devour.
PlotWriMo: Revise Your Novel in a Month is the perfect opportunity to revise what you’ve written with step-by-step instruction and daily exercise. Writing a great plot involves craft and skill and know-how. Before you undertake a major rewrite, first consider your story from all angles. You know you’re ready when you’ve checked all the essentials elements for creating an exciting story with compelling characters and a meaningful plot.
Here’s How Revise Your Novel in a Month Works
Revise Your Novel in a Month provides you with 8 instructional videos. Each video includes an in-depth look at specific plot elements and how to consider these essential story principles as you revise your story. Writing assignment(s) to guide you from draft to a finished novel provide you with step-by-step instruction how to analyze and revise your concept, characters, theme, plot and story before rewriting.
To complete the course in a month, watch two videos a week. Or, work at your own pace and take more or less time on the step-by-step exercises. PlotWriMo workshops are designed to fit into even the busiest of schedules. The workshops have no set meeting time. You sign in and watch video lectures, complete homework assignments, and ask questions in a public forum on a timetable that fits your needs.
You decide your revision pace as you explore and complete each video exercise based on your own individual needs in preparation for a major rewrite.
