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.
