What are the program features that can help you
write a book?
Non-Linear Book Writing is how most of us start
out and... run aground. A classic example of
non-linear writing is when you come up with a
brilliant ending for a story – before you have
even begun to consider how it starts or
develops! For most of us, the creative process
is entirely non-linear - ie we may be thinking
about the next event in a characters life and
come up with a brilliant idea for two chapters
down the line. You don’t want to wait until then
to get the material down, and writing scribbly
notes on scraps of paper inevitably leads to
chaos. Our book writing program develops your
creativity by allowing you to move back and
forward as ideas occur to you, making notes and
developing ideas to their heart’s content.
Prompts on what to do next . Hmmm, what should
the next scene be about? How should I develop my
subplot. Good questions which often come up, in
addition to many, many more from writers working
on a novel. If you get a little stuck whilst
using NewNovelist, you just hit the F1 key and
up comes a page of hints and tips - which could
mean that your stumbling block is a small hurdle
rather than a major detour in your book writing
Note Taking. Make notes that won’t be lost
(unlike the numerous scrap pieces of paper many
book writers use). Placed in an ordering system
they can be found simply and easily - saving
most writers a great deal of time in itself.
Tuition. New to book writing? Our program
features a context sensitive tuition system
which can help neophytes and the more
experienced users alike.
Formatting. NewNovelist incorporates simple
formatting - for a clean, concise manuscript
ready to be sent to potential publishers.
3-D Characters. Our program prompts you to
develop your characters’ features in all manner
of directions – directions which in themselves
help you think about the next twist in the tale.
Attributes such as self awareness and the dress
of your characters not only enable you to
develop bold, real-world personalities, but they
also demand you think about the back story for
each of them – and maintain the consistency
throughout the book.
Simplicity. Our book writing program is easy to
use, with the minimum of fuss and hassle. Even
those inexperienced with software programs will
pick it up in no time. If you can point with a
mouse, and type (with one or two fingers!) you
will quickly be able to start on your novel.
NewNovelist and Creative Writing|
Creative writing and learning how to write a novel can be
exceptionally hard. First, you have to learn the basics, then
you have to practice... and practice... and practice. And you also
have to research what makes a successful novel. The vast
majority of novels adopt a basic formula, and we incorporate
these within NewNovelist.
Whilst throughout these additional information pages we have
provided tips and 'how-to' advice, the real gold dust is in our
software program (available on CD or to download). It is based
on tuition from the leading university Creative Writing course
in England (University of East Anglia), and uses templates to
provide you with the structure you might otherwise spend years
researching. These templates can teach you the basics to writing
all different types of novel: crime, mystery, detective,
fantasy, childrens, thrillers, military and many many more. In
short, it provides you with a virtual tutor.
In addition to the template structure, there is context
sensitive help available - advising you on timing, tone and beat
- and scores of examples drawn from modern and classical
literature. For beginners this will be a revelation. For more
experienced writers it provides a welcome refresher.
Whatever your standard of writing, and whatever your motivation,
if you want an all-in-one writing course, advice, tutor, editor
and note taker you should buy NewNovelist today.|
