This week's topics include: Assignment: you will write dialogue in several different forms, exploring the multiple ways it will function in your novel.
Week 4: Managing Plot One of the most frequent complaints we hear from aspiring novelists is that they’ve hit the wall: at fifty, eighty, one hundred pages they lose momentum and just don’t know how to continue.
This software also has a set of brainstorming tools that make the writing process a hell of a lot easier! I have been searching for Chromebook-compatible software which will let me organise, structure and revise a novel: I sometimes need to work offline, and none of the wholly cloud-based apps are suitable.
This app has the potential to outstrip the capabilities of similar software applications on the market, free and paid. Wavemaker not only does the standard organisation things, but it has a *timeline* feature, which makes me super-happy. Very much enjoying my first experiments and looking forward to exploring in-depth! The approach is fresh, cleaner and more intuitive than I have seen in other software for organizing writing projects, and even at this early stage it has the features that count most for me.
I'm very happy to see it using a cross-platform technology that runs offline.

Ask yourself why we would want to read about or watch your doctor.”Begin by focusing on small elements of it or the person.
If you are describing a field, start with the green grass, move onto the sky, and the background elements in the distance.
You’ll write the end of your novel: the last chapter, last scene, last moments.
Even if you haven't completed your draft yet, you will jump forward to those final pages.
