About ‘How To Edit A Novel’

Knowing how to edit a novel is tricky. With so many words and so many elements, writers can quickly become ensnared in different strands of plots, conflict and characterisation.

Organisation is key and so is compartmentalising the process. And this is what we explore in detail in this writing class.

We’ll first examine the challenges of editing a novel—the psychological, the motivational and organisational—before discussing some different approaches to editing.

We also look at different editing styles before moving on to the most effective method of editing a novel.

The bulk of the writing class will focus on this method, in particular, teaching you quick and easy tools and techniques to edit more analytically and effectively.

We’ll also look at working with editors and how to get the most out of free editing tools, such as my editing checklist which you’ll receive as part of the class.

Who Would Benefit From This Online Editing Class?

This writing class is ideal for anyone approaching the challenge of editing a novel for the first time.

You may be unsure how to approach the task—line by line or looking at the broader picture? This writing class will dispel uncertainty.

It gives you a simple and effective step-by-step method that covers every aspect of the storytelling process. It ensures there are no sagging middles and that all strands of the story are tied up in neat bows.

Combined with the editing checklist you receive as part of the writing class, you’ll finish with everything you need to know about editing novels.

Nothing To Lose And Much To Gain

I’m not satisfied unless you are. That’s why you can get a full refund within the first two weeks of purchase if you’re not happy with the writing class. That means you’ve got nothing to lose in giving it a go.

And there’s potentially a lot to gain. Maybe even that missing piece of the puzzle that makes everything click for you.

At one time, I never used to go to writing classes. I tried to teach myself. But I soon realised that classes like this are shortcuts. Or my classes are anyway.

I’ve spent hundreds of hours studying writing, practising, and editing too (working professionally as a copy editor too). In this writing class, I condense all of those hours and show you the essential, need-to-know bits.

You’re skipping out all of those laborious hours I spent and getting it all in a neat 90 minutes. And what I’ve picked up may make sense to you and may help you take your writing to another level.

So like I said—nothing to lose and potentially lots to gain!

Keep Learning Beyond Online Writing Classes

Attending online writing classes is a fantastic step toward achieving your goals. But the learning doesn’t stop when the teacher signs off.

As well as practising the new things you’ve learned, it’s important to see if they’ve worked. For that, you need to get someone to cast a critical eye over your work—otherwise known as a beta reader.

Now finding such selfless people can be hard to find. But I have a quick solution—my online writing group.

With hundreds of us on Discord and Facebook, you can quickly find someone to read over your work and provide you with feedback. That way, you can put your new-found writing skills to the test and hopefully learn from the insights you get from others.
