How to plan a novel – Ep 6 FREE podcast for writers

Today we’re talking about writing fiction. How do you plan a novel before you start the writing? What should you think about to write an effective plan? Why is it worth doing this instead of letting your imagination fly wherever it wants? How much leeway should you leave for spur-of-the-moment inspiration? What are some of the secret plotting techniques that you could use to make the best use of your story idea?

Asking the questions is independent bookseller Peter Snell. Answering them is me!

Stream from the widget below or go to our Mixcloud page and binge the whole lot.

PS If you’d like more concentrated writing advice, try my Nail Your Novel books, especially my workbook.

If you’re curious about my own creative writing, find novels here and my travel memoir here. And if you’re curious about what’s going on at my own writing desk, find my latest newsletter here and subscribe to future updates here.

    Hi Roz

    Just a quick note to say your podcast series is absolutely brilliant thank you. So much of it is relevant to my WIP, I knew I hadn’t quite grasped the storytelling and now I know why! I’m also working through your brilliant book Draft Fix and Finish with Confidence, and hoping to finish this summer.

    Thank you
