Taking You From Idea To Published in Ninety Days

A complete step-by-step guide to planning, writing, and finishing your novel in ninety days

Have you always dreamed of writing a novel?
Have you worked hard fulfilling everyone else’s dreams, only to find yours have been on hold for too long?
Do you have the desire to write but aren’t sure of how to go about it?

Then this course is for you!

This is my year of writing excellence and I'd like you to join me in getting your novel written. For the next ninety days you will have my undivided attention as you start out on your writing journey. Why? Because I’ve been where you are now and I know how you feel.

Writing is lonely (I’m there for you, often a Skype call or email away)

Writing is hard (I’m there to tell you to keep going because it gets easier)

It’s easy to lose motivation (I’m there to remind you why your dreams matter)

Good writing takes time (I’m giving you ninety days of mine to help you achieve your goals)

The next ninety days is yours to plan, research and write your novel with me as your cheer squad, mentor and accountability partner. I'm there to guide you through the planning, drafting, writing, editing, and finishing phases of making your dream novel come to life.

‘Nobody can teach anyone else to have a talent. All a teacher can do is set high goals for students – or get them to set them for themselves – and, then, try to help them reach those goals.’

Wallace Stegner, 1988, On The Teaching of Creative Writing

I've done the training and I've been helping writers for longer than I care to remember. I have academic prizes and published academic papers. More importantly, I’ve walked in your shoes. I’ve felt the fear and done it anyway.

I so highly recommend Melinda Hammond’s writing course for adults. Melinda has helped me to unlock my writing. For a long time I knew I had a book in me but I had no idea how to start, and didn’t have the confidence. The regular sessions I have had with Melinda has helped to give me focus, direction and motivation. She has gently encouraged me to become the writer I wanted to be and has been my accountability buddy. Knowing she was there waiting for the next instalment gave me the incentive to push through difficult days when writing was tough. Melinda helps writers young and old(er) to realise their dreams of becoming a published author.
