Novels tend to fall apart around 30,000 – 40,000 words, the last section written not in that first rush of excitement of a new idea but often abandoned in a slog of insecurity and grouchiness. This course will help you approach finishing your novel with confidence. With exercises, coaching and a whip if need be, Nina Killham will help get you to the finish line. Because as anyone in the industry knows, finishing your novel is just the beginning.

You will learn:

  • how to fill the holes in a plot and remind yourself of the goal of your novel
  • how to plan your trek to the finish, using word counts, exercises, even apps
  • how to silence your inner critics
  • how to divide your mess into manageable sections
  • how to craft an ending your novel deserves
