How to Write and Publish a Novel in 3 Weeks
Are you interested in writing fiction? Especially novels? Maybe humor? Mysteries? Sci-fi?

Visit http://www.geniuswriter.info to learn how to do it.

This page will show you a list of courses you can study. Regardless of what your writing interests are, you might find something at this page that will help you. For what it's worth, I would recommend it. These are excellent courses.

This video explains in simple language how to write and publish a novel in 3 weeks. While some people will need longer than that to finish, the method I outline will show you how to write one in three weeks. Thirty days is simply not necessary.

The steps to writing a novel involve writing a one line summary, writing a list of events and characters, drafting a plot, planning scenes, writing the manuscript, revising and proofreading, getting the design work done, and then just doing it all over again.

I also go over how to upload and publish to Amazon and Smashwords, which are very important publication platforms and models in this age of the publishing business and industry.

The video is just a little under half an hour long, and it has some good information. In addition to telling you how to write a novel, the video actually covers some basic information on novels themselves, such as the length of a standard novel and how novels are laid out. It mainly covers electronic publishing, stating that traditional or "print" publishing is not a good modern model for making money in writing fiction. But electronic publishing absolutely is.

I hope you enjoy this video.

The Bookshelf Tour!
At last! The long awaited bookshelf tour! Woo hoo!

Sorry for the shaky camera action and all the "ums" and "uhs". My shelves are organized in such a way that I don't even understand the method behind my madness. Like book feng shui or something.

If I went too fast or was too confusing, just ask me whatever questions you may have in the comments and I will do my best to reply!

How To Prepare For NaNoWriMo!
In today's video I give you five ways to prepare for the coming NaNoWriMo season!

Be my NaNoWriMo Buddy! http://www.nanowrimo.org/en/participants/kat-tastic

Occasionally I make my point in less than 140 characters! https://twitter.com/kat_tastic

TL;DW version:
1. Prepare your mind. Trick yourself into thinking the insanity of NaNoWriMo is a good idea.
2. Prepare your friends and family for your disappearance. You'll see them in December. If you're a social recluse like I am, you can probably skip this step.
3. Prepare your body so you don't die. Remember to eat, hydrate, sleep, and stretch. Death lurks around every corner.
4. Prepare your emotions. Get ready to feel feelings.
5. Prepare your story. At least a little bit. Or not. It's your story.

Outlining Liveshow! [February 19th, 2013]
Recorded liveshow from Feb 19th! I spend some time talking and answering questions, then we get back to work on developing the Warlock & Gladiator story! It's really more of a brainstorm session today as we try to nail down some world details and character motivations. We need more information about the first half of the story before we can figure out how it all comes together in the end.

How to Write a Book - In just Hours!
A Simple step-by-step system for turning your ideas into actual books. I let you WATCH from the beginning as I brainstorm creating something from nothing knowing that it will create income for many years to come. Overcome writers block and actually START your project TODAY by following these simple proven steps. This will make the difference between having an actual PROJECT or a 'work in progress' versus just an 'idea' which often ends up being just a fantasy that is never even started.

Getting started is half the battle and the most important thing for you to do. This is how I do it. It's worked for me and others that have followed it.

9 Blocks and The Plot Board for NaNoWriMo Day 17
So this is the three act/nine block/twenty-seven chapter outline thing that I've been using. I kinda thought a video would help get the idea across, but I think it ended up more rambly, less explainy.

Also I talk to myself a little and it's weird. Enjoy.
