How to write a best selling novel
 
Here are three rules for writing the novel. Unfortunately, no one knows what they are.
W. Somerset Maugham (1874 - 1965)

Well, if we had the exact formula it would be simply priceless! However, what is generally accepted is that there are some basic elements that every novel should possess. And whilst every writer will have their own way of going about things, there are some essential activities that all successful writers refer to again and again and again. (NB: our novel writing software can help guide you along with all of the following points)

So to start off the debate on how to write a best selling novel, the primary step is quite a simple one – note taking. The key to driving a best-selling novel will be the quality, lucidity, and quantity of your ideas. Unless you are gifted with a photographic memory and an endless supply of new ideas, you will be stuck with the rest of us humans – who have flashes of inspiration interspersed with prolonged periods of angst. And also, the ideas that we have can never all be captured in a single story, and the characters that we dream up will need to have different worlds created for them in books you might start working on in 3 years time. Once you have the notes taken, you can build on them – layering detail as it occurs to you. If you use a software program created specifically for writing novels - such as NewNovelist – you can do all of this, secure in the knowledge that there is an order to them, that they are instantly retrievable, and you can use them immediately in your writing.

With these basic notes laid down as a foundation, you can move on to weaving them together into a novel that could one day be the next New York Times Bestseller. You’ve created an amazingly powerful character, who will play an important role in a plot turn. But where exactly will this occur? If you don’t know the answer yet it doesn’t matter, because with NewNovelist software for writing you can move everything around with a click of the mouse. Move story points around and modify characters until it all reads as you would like it. Using a novel writing program is a far faster option than retyping everything, the time that it saves you can be spent on one of the most important steps in how to write a best selling novel – thinking.

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.
