Novel Writing

Immerse yourself in a world of fantasy!

Many people dream of writing fiction for a living, but only an elite handful succeed. This isn't necessarily because everyone else lacks the talent, but because the majority of aspiring writers lack the essential knowledge needed to craft their work to a professional, publishable standard. Like the perfect pitch for a composer, a talent for writing is only one important ingredient for your success as a novelist. In fact, it takes as much knowledge and persistence to arrange all the pieces of a novel into a harmonious whole as it does to translate the perfect pitch into a symphony.

Lifestyle Learning Direct’s Novel Writing course has all the ingredients to enable you to master the techniques of writing a novel that will not only satisfy the author, but the readers and publisher as well. During the course you will chart the entire process of bringing the popular genre novel – whether it’s mystery, science fiction, fantasy, romance or techno-thriller – into life.

Step-by-step, this course will walk you through the entire process of writing fiction, from the first spark of an idea to establishing a point of view, to developing your own style and polishing your final work. This course is ideal for anyone who has nursed a dream of one day writing a bestseller. Whether you wish to write for a career or recreationally, this course will take you where you want to go. It's time to fulfill your burning ambition and get that book you've always wanted to write, out of your head and on to the page.
