      In this zip-file you'll get all the lessons in a pdf + workbooks for each building block (also in pdfs).


      With The Building Blocks of a Novel, you'll get the information and guidance you need to craft a solid foundation for your story!


      The Building Blocks of a Novel is a five-part, text-based course designed to give you guidance to craft the building blocks that are necessary for a story—building blocks like world building, character creation, story structure, and more.


      This course will show you examples from J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter-series, and how to use those very same techniques and adapt them to your chosen genre. This way you'll get the most out of the techniques you'll learn (and it means that you don't have to write children's books, MG, YA, or Fantasy to benefit from the course).


      If you follow through with the course and take the action steps provided, you’ll have a solid story idea to develop into something great. It will take some hard work, but the result of finally having a solid beginning to your story will be well worth it.


      You'll get five parts with twenty-eight lessons in total. You'll also receive workbooks to help you come up with ideas and develop the foundation of your story!


      PART #1: World building

      Learn how J.K. Rowling built the world to her Harry Potter-series and how you can use the knowledge to build your own, whether your story's world is entirely fictional or not.

      You'll also learn:

      • Why world building is important
      • The big building blocks of world building
      • The rich details of world building
      • And more!


      PART #2: Characters

      Learn how to use archetypes to create your cast of characters, just like J.K. Rowling did in the Harry Potter-series.

      You'll also learn:

      • How to categorize your characters
      • The archetypal characters of heroes/heroines/antiheroes, antagonists, mentors, and sidekicks
      • An additional list of archetypal characters Rowling used in the Harry Potter-series
      • And more!


      PART #3: Backstory

      Learn the importance of backstory and how to use it the right way.

      You'll also learn:

      • How J.K. Rowling used backstory to create suspense
      • Why it's important that secondary characters have a backstory
      • The importance of holding off backstory
      • And more!

      PART #4: Story Structure

      Learn a simple, universal story structure and how to use it.

      You'll also learn:

      • How to use the structure to create a solid plot that will enrich your story rather than break it
      • How J.K. Rowling used story structure in the Harry Potter-series and what lessons we can learn from that
      • And more!


      PART #5: Outlining

      Learn why an outline is important and how to make the most out of one.

      You'll also learn:

      • What plot-threads are
      • What key scenes are and their importance
      • What makes a story strong and cohesive
      • And more!
