About This Course

Welcome to Fiction Writing for Beginners. If you’ve always dreamed about writing a novel or a short story, this is the perfect course for you.

Fiction Writing for Beginners is designed for anyone who is interested in writing and needs practical advice on how to get started, PLUS motivation and encouragement to keep writing.

Thirteen easy-to-follow classes cover the writing process from start to finish. You’ll learn where writers get ideas, how to create characters, get expert tips on writing your story, and find out how to submit it for publication. Everything you need to know to start writing is wrapped up in this comprehensive and fun course.

Each class is self-contained and self-directed. This way, you can learn about a specific topic at your own pace, and not worry about completing the class by a certain deadline. Short writing exercises at the end of each class highlight the subject matter and get you writing.

The classes are grouped into four sections, and each section focuses on a writing theme. Here’s the breakdown:

Section 1: Getting Started

Class 1: The 5 Ws of Writing

Class 2: Getting in the Writing Zone & Staying Motivated

Class 3: Where Do Writers Get Their Ideas? (Part 1)

Class 4: Where Do Writers Get Their Ideas? (Part 2)

Section 2: Creating Your Characters

Class 5: Creating Characters

Class 6: Developing Heroes, Villains & Secondary Characters

Section 3: Get Writing!

Class 7: Plotting Your Story

Class 8: Scenes, Sequels & GMC

Class 9: Point-of-view & Dialogue

Class 10: Setting, Details & Research

Section 4: Revising, Submitting & Promoting Your Story

Class 11: Revising Your Story

Class 12: Getting Feedback on Your Story

Class 13: Submitting & Promoting Your Story

Ideally, the classes should be completed in order, so you build on what you’ve learned before moving on. (I recommend focusing on one class per day.)

But this is your course—so feel free to modify it if you want to. You can take the classes in any order you choose, revisit them to reinforce a topic, or skip to the ones that interest you the most.

Whatever you do, have fun and let your imagination soar!

Happy Writing,

Kelli A. Wilkins
