Join Jessica Brody, author of the #1 bestselling plotting guide, Save the Cat! Writes a Novel, and the author of more than twenty novels published by major publishers, as she guides you through her tried-and-true method for finishing novels quickly, easily, and efficiently…
The Fast Drafting Method
Have you ever…
- Abandoned a novel or short story halfway through?
- Struggled to finish a novel that you were once excited about?
- Spent months or even years wrestling with the same project?
- Wished you could finish your writing projects faster?
- Driven yourself mad with stress, anxiety, and doubt over the novel you’re working on?
- Wondered if there was an easier way?
You’re not alone. It’s estimated that 97% of people who start a novel never finish it!
Jessica used to struggle with these same things, until she developed her own Fast Drafting method. Now she finishes her first drafts in 3-12 weeks (depending on the length and complexity of the project) which allows her to consistently write 3-4 novels per year.
The Novel Fast Drafting course will teach you a method of writing that will not only give you the best possible chance of finishing the projects that you start but finishing them in the fastest most efficient way possible. Meaning, the least amount of time spent writing, rewriting, revising, stressing, and agonizing about things like what to write next, whether your project is working, and whether or not you’re ever going to finish it.
Throughout this online, self-paced course, you will learn…
- Why the majority of novels are never finished
- The necessary mindset to ensure you finish every writing project that you start
- A complete step-by-step action plan for finishing your first draft in record time (perfect for NaNoWriMo writers trying to hit 50k in 30 days!)
- A customizable method for brainstorming a novel that applies to “plotters,” “pantsers,” and every writer in between
- The 7 Golden Rules of Fast Drafting that will set you up to succeed every time you start a new project
- Proven strategies, tools, templates, checklists, and techniques developed by bestselling author, Jessica Brody who consistently writes 3-4 books per year
This course is broken down into three phases:
Phase 1: Mindset
Where you’ll learn how to set your mind in the right place for Fast Drafting success and learn the two core philosophies that make up the Fast Drafting Method.
Phase 2: Preparation
Where Jessica will guide you through easy-to-follow, actionable (and customizable) steps to get you, your schedule, your life, and your story ready for drafting. This phase includes three Writer’s Room sessions dedicated to brainstorming the characters, plot, and world of your story, during which Jessica will brainstorm her latest Fast Drafting project right along with you and share her results.
Phase 3: Drafting
Where you’ll learn what to do Before, During, and After each writing session to ensure you’re always writing toward your goals with the least amount of stress and wasted time, and reaching that finish line faster than you’ve ever reached it before. This phase also includes a “Fast Drafting Demonstration” where Jessica pulls back the curtain and shares her screen with you while she Fast Drafts a chapter of her latest novel, so you can see exactly how she puts into practice all of the steps, strategies, and tools she’ll be giving you throughout this course.
By the end of this course, you’ll have all the skills you need to finish your novels in record time!
