  1. Dear Writer,

    I was reading about beat sheets on another website and came upon your link. I would like to find out about” the Url link and the beat sheet that can be used for a novel that was mentioned on that website

    1. Hi Natalie
      You’re certainly at the right site – the beat sheet is a tool I’ve developed for revising novels. You should find it in the tag cloud on the right-hand side, and another way to find articles about it is if you type it into the search box. Plus it’s in my book, Nail Your Novel, available on Good luck with your novel. Roz

  2. Your book seems very intriguing but why isn’t it on, if the alternate shop you have it on isn’t usable if your english?

    You seriously didn’t think ENGLAND would be a big market for this?
    The country famous for spawning novelists?

    Let me know when you put it on or a shop that actually works for England, because I would like to buy the book

  4. Hi Roz,

    We met on Hereafter – a long time ago now! Hope you’re well. I love you’re blog.

    Im asking for help for a friend, she’s actually a characterful Tunisian woman who does my waxing! She has an amazing life story and is looking for someone to help her write it up. Do you know how she could go about finding someone?

    Much love

  5. Hello,

    I have a failed novel and revamped it. I used a friends friend to do the editing and the publishing. I was taken (Juiced) for 1,500.00. Now I am using a professional firm and paying even more. But my question is how to make sure I get my novel in your hands and others that are successful like yourself? If you will or have time pls e-mail me at

    Thank You

    What to make for real this time!

  6. Hi Roz, I finished reading “Nail Your Novel” (wish I’d read it a year ago) and have a question: During the past 12 months, I re-wrote my novel 8 times as part of a critique group, and now I’m wondering if I should just go back to my 1st draft and start over? My book is different now. In some ways better, in some ways worse. I’m not even sure I can work with it (in it’s present, 8th incarnation). I’m feeling a bit discouraged and don’t know how to recapture the original freshness. I think there are some good changes in the revisions, but also a lot of bad direction. How will I sort through it?

    1. Hi Vanessa
      Interesting situation – but by no means atypical. I think a lot of writers have found themselves in this same situation so it would probably be most helpful if I answer this in a post. Stay tuned – and thanks for your kind comments about Nail Your Novel.

    1. I always advise writers to go conventional first. Querying is the way to test if your work is up to standard. If you have near misses, they will tell you what you need to work on – and that advice is free. If you never hear or get form rejections, you’ve probably got a way to go and should probably work on your craft. An agent may end up not taking you on, and you may have to query a lot of them, but if you can’t get detailed attention from them at all you probably aren’t ready to publish on your own.

  7. Hi, Roz. I am in the process of making revisions to my first short story, and I would like some feedback. My degree is in English, but I spent my college career writing critical evaluations of other works. Now that I’m writing my own, I would like to know if I’m on the right path. I’ve heard of people using online critique groups in these situations, but the reviews are always mixed. Where would you suggest that I go to get feedback for an unfinished first short story?

    1. Hi – forgive me, the comment doesn’t tell me your name! Online critique groups are a great resource, because you can find people who are at the level you need and in tune with the kind of story you want to write. In the old days of offline, writers were kind of stuck with whoever they could fine in their neighourhood.
      You might need to audition a few before you take the plunge, to make sure they’re right for you. Good luck!

  8. This may be a stupid question but how long does it take to write a novel on average? How many pages should a first time writer shoot for and would an anthology of short stories work as a first time book?

    1. How long does it take to write? First novels can take years because you’re learning as you go. You keep realising there are other ways to write scenes, create characters. You’re getting your head around a lot of new techniques, and noticing more in your reading.
      How many pages should you aim for? Per day? Write as much as you can, but keep the output steady. It’s more important to keep your flow and momentum than to race to fill a pagecount. And you have to edit once you’ve finished, so the length of a first draft bears little relationship to the length of the finished book. (Try Nail Your Novel, original flavour, for guidance)
      Would an anthology of short stories work? Yes it would, but you’d sell them to a different market from novels. They might be good as a taster for readers. You can find plenty of websites where short stories are welcomed. And any storytelling work will hone your writing craft.
      In the world of traditional publishing, short stories are regarded as much harder to sell – and therefore less attractive to editors and agents. But in the indie world, you make you own luck.
      Good luck!

  10. Hi Roz,

    I e-mailed you from the e-mail you sent earlier today. I look forward to hearing back from you when are able too.



  11. Hi Roz,

    I’m in the mid stages of writing three novels two are psychological fantasy and the other is a drama crime novel, would it be possible to send the synopsis of each and get some feedback if you do that? thank you

  12. Hello Roz,

    I found your first book,” Nail Your Novel” very helpful and will be going on to your next book regarding character development shortly.

    In “Nail Your Novel” you mention that sometimes you refer to your so called “technical books” when the need arises.

    Since I desire very much to learn the craft of novel writing, can you tell me the titles and other relevant details pertaining to those technical

    resources. Ideally this one of many resources would form a complete set of technical books that I can study to deepen my understanding of the writers craft.

    I would be most grateful if you could fulfill completely this request.

  13. Dear mam,
    Being totally oblivious about the world of writing; one day, i accidentally came across your website, when my curiosity made me typed that phrase “how to be a novelist”. and thanks to your wonderful work, now i am an author. i really hope to show you my work one day.

Your turn!
