Writing Novels for children
One of the best tips anyone can give on child book writing is to read, read and read. It may be a few years since you picked up a picture book, but look over as many childrens books as you possibly can (ideally the more successful ones such as Harry Potter) and analyze them. You will soon see that they share common ingredients:

Very Well Defined Characters: What are the best characters in a childs book? What common traits or features do good villains have? What do good heroes or heroines have in common. Often you will be able to spot similar features or themes such as compassion and work them into your story in order to make it more effective and compelling for the child who reads it.

Very Clear Plot: When writing a book for a child what tips can you pick up for the plot? Do successful books start with a bang or are they slow burners? Pacing is very important in all books, and the pacing has to match the story type and – most importantly – the reader.

These are just two of the many important features you should be researching for child book writing.

Then of course, you need to bring it all together. You may have all the ideas for the story, but little notion of how to structure it. Alternatively, you may have just arrived at the dreaded ‘writers block.’ Our novel writing software can help all types of writer – providing you with a whole armory of tools to get you started, through the middle and across the finishing line. There are note taking features to facilitate free-flowing idea generation; prompts for plot and character features which may start the creative juices flowing again; tuition at every stage relevant to the step you are currently working on.

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.
