Welcome to my guide to writing a novel.  Thank you so much for dropping by. My aim is to help you achieve your dream by providing some simple advice and basic principles.

That can takes months or years of hard work and a great deal of dedication. As with any trade or craft, an important part of that process is to gain the necessary knowledge and skills that will make you an expert.

I will add more articles from time to time, so do keep in touch.
