Hi fellow writer! I'm thinking of creating an online novel and script writing course and I need your opinion! I have done various novel and script writing courses, and I've learned some valuable lessons, but still struggled with finishing a first draft. It seemed a mamouth task and so easy to delay on, so I needed to be held accountable. I was quite good at creating characters and an atmosphere but I needed help making sure the story was gripping enough. I did a lot of research around modern and historical novel writers and screen writers to understand more about the way stories are written. I've found that the really gripping ones follow a very similar framework. It doesn't matter if it's a romance, a thriller, sci fi, drama, comedy etc, this framework always works. I wanted to know, if you were/are planning to write a novel and I could give you lots of examples of great famous novels and screen plays that have used this framework, would you be interested to use it? I'm thinking of creating a novel and screen writing course using this framework and drip feeding the next stages of the novel to members of my site each week. I would ask people to write for about half an hour a day, 5 days a week. The framework means they wouldn't need to plan their story, they would just let it unfold naturally. An example of one half an hour block of writing is: 'your main character gets a nasty surprise'. The surprise in this example will mean different things to the different writers on the course. For one, it may mean his character not receiving a letter that was promised, for someone else, it could be losing her sister in an airport, or somehow finding herself on the wrong plane. For another, it could be a village being invaded. So despite using the same framework. Everyone will have a completely different novel or screen play. The course would last for 9 months and then your first draft of a novel/film script would be born. There would be a small community of writers on the course. People wanting to take part would have to apply by submitting some writing. This would ensure only those of a high standard would be criting each other's work. Does this sound like something you'd be interested in if you were about to start writing a novel or screen play? If so what would you be willing to pay each month? And would you prefer to pay more to have your work critted by an author? If so, how much? Your feedback would be so much appreciated. Thanks!
