The first four weeks are preparation and setup — and once you’ve mastered the techniques and concepts involved, you’ll be able to work through this part in a day or two.
After that, you’ll be writing your novel for the next thirty-three weeks. That part? Well, it depends on you, on the book, on how big you want it to be when you’re finished, and on LIFE, and what life decides to do while you’re writing. But you can can spend a year (or more) writing bigger books if you want, or a few months writing shorter novels if you’re so inclined.
The process will fit what you want to do with it. So let’s look at the process.
Based on what you've learned and what you still want to learn, if you're a member of THIS version of the class you'll suggest possible bonuses, I'll select the ones I'm actually capable of creating (previous classes and I have discovered that sometimes an idea that seems incredibly cool is impossible to create), I'll put up a vote just for students in the class, and then I'll build that bonus.
Matt Turano has been my content editor for every novel I've written since 1995, including commercially published novels that got a second edit from the publishing house editors when I turned it in.
In the last year, he's started accepting clients. And his regular rates are better than industry averages... For folks who aren't my students, he starts at $997 per 100,000 words.
My students get significant discounts. But nothing like what he suggested for students of the Super-Early-Bird version of this class.
For ONLY the folks who go through the class when I'm working just one lesson ahead of the folks who are doing the lesson, he'll do one content edit of your finished manuscript for $197. That's over 80% off his regular price.
A couple of important notes about Matt's bonus.
The price of the edit is NOT figured into the price of the class, because neither of us wanted to charge folks for something they might not use.
The reason the price on this class is so good is that I'm writing the lessons one lesson ahead of the first group of students in. Creating thet class AS PEOPLE are taking it.
I know this sounds strange, but this is the way I've found that allows me to fund the creation of bigger classes, to make sure that every lesson is relevant to the students taking it, to test worksheets and processes on the first group going through to make them work better.
Because I do this, sometimes it takes me more than one week to write a lesson. So students don't always get their lesson on the same day of every week.
Because I do this, I'm working quickly, and the first run of lessons always have typos and other errors that I go back after the class is completely done, and fix (with a Canary Class of students going through and bug-hunting for me).
So the first group of students consists of me and the folks upon whom I'm testing the lessons.
If you let me test the class on you, you get a special price, you get special bonuses -- and you get all inversion upgrades, including the inevitable Canary Class upgrade, for free.
Because having folks who are willing to help me test a class and endure the Splinters means the world to me.
