6 Weeks to Edit Your Novel

Starting Monday, June 5, Lucy Cooke, the incredible Fictionary Certified StoryCoach Editor, takes you on a step-by-step journey to create a solid revision plan for your raw manuscript.

As we explore each week’s destination, you’ll have everything you need to transform your first draft into a novel that will captivate your readers.

Week 1: Drafting a Revision Plan and Testing Your Story Structure

You can’t start a journey without a roadmap, and that’s precisely what we’re building in week 1. You’ll learn how to draft an effective revision plan and start testing your story’s structure. Consider this as checking the oil and tire pressure before hitting the open road.

Week 2: Constructing Scenes That Keep the Pages Turning

A story, much like a road trip, is all about the journey and not just the destination. In week 2, we’ll focus on creating scenes that make your readers buckle up tight and enjoy the ride.

Week 3: Building Characters That Captivate Readers

Any road trip is only as good as your travel companions. In week 3, we delve deep into the hearts and minds of your characters, crafting multifaceted personalities that will captivate your readers from the first page to the last.

Week 4: Ensuring Every Scene Packs a Punch

Week 4 is all about power. Scene power, that is. We’ll ensure that every scene in your story delivers the punch that keeps your readers on the edge of their seats, eager for more.

Week 5: Creating an Interesting Setting

Every road trip is defined by the sights along the way. In week 5, we’ll guide you in creating a setting that adds depth and richness to your story, making your fictional world as interesting as the characters that inhabit it.

Week 6: Final Review and Crafting Your Revision Plan

By week 6, we’re on the home stretch. We’ll review everything we’ve covered so far and help you craft your detailed revision plan. It’s like polishing your car before the grand parade. Your story deserves to shine.
