Do you struggle to finish a novel? Have you tried NaNoWriMo and failed? Discover how to master your time and finish a first draft in a month or less.

And you’re going to need the right tool which is why I’m thrilled to announce Plottr as a partner in the challenge! Plottr is the #1 visual outlining and book planning software for writers. With Plottr at your side, your book might just start writing itself.

  • Day 2: How to uncover your story’s Conflict, Choice, and Consequence—the roadmap you’ll need to finish the manuscript
  • Day 3: How to use a few simple bullet points to map out your story’s 12 Stages which will become the spine of your manuscript
  • Day 4: How to slay the dragon of genre and theme, giving you the confidence to know what you’re writing and who it’s for
  • Day 5: How to sketch out your characters and your world to create an immersive experience readers won’t want to leave
