PLOTSTORMERS
HOW TO PLOT A NOVEL - FROM IDEA TO OUTLINE IN SIX WEEKS

I have always written without a plan but Plotstormers helped me realise I could save myself a lot of work and rewriting if I structure an outline and work from there. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to stick to my plan but at least it’s there to help keep me on track. The course was fun, easy to follow and made the process very clear and straightforward.

Whoop fucking whoop

This was the best plotting course around. Thought I was a plotter before I did this but now I know differently. I’m exhausted – but I have a very good plan for my novel!

Plotstormers – guidance, structure, encouragement, a kick up the pants!

I wasn’t convinced any kind of online writing course could benefit me, having heard other writers’ tales of disappointment, but I would have no hesitation in recommending this one – and indeed anything else Writers’ HQ put out. Excellent in every way, refreshing and full of wisdom.
