Is this you?
You're an aspiring writer and you have great ideas. You know you're capable of writing an interesting story.
You've jotted down ideas for many projects and people have even told you they would love to read them!
But no matter how much you want to write or how much effort you put into your project, you still keep getting stuck.
The thing is, you might be an incredible writer, but you haven't cracked the secret behind a powerful outline yet.
You've saved a bunch of writing tips on Instagram, read about a million blog posts that promise to improve your writing skills, watched all the YouTube videos on the topic and applied everything they've told you to do, like "come up with a writing routine" and "build a strong protagonist", but:
You don't know where to start
You're missing the middle of your story
Your outline has turned into an unorganized file full of ideas that don't belong
And because of that you're losing motivation to continue
Your word count has been stuck on the same number for months
And your pile of unfinished ideas just keeps growing...
97% of writers NEVER finish their novels.
And that sucks. It's sad to see so many bright individuals like YOU who have all the right ideas, who could tell captivating stories, fail.
Writing a book is hard, I won't lie. But it becomes easier and faster with the right tools and outlining strategies in place.
OUTLINE WITH EASE
Get clarity on your project with outlining techniques - you know exactly what your project is about and you've got all your major plot points covered. No more guesswork, and no more plot holes!
Your thoughts are all organized in one place and you know exactly where to find them.
MAKE YOUR STORIES MATTER
Your stories have a clear theme from the get-go. You know what message you're trying to deliver and you know how to create hints and meaningful moments your readers will love! Your stories have a deeper meaning.
WHAT IF YOU COULD...
CREATE LAYERED AND DIVERSE CHARACTERS
Your characters are tangible and they feel real! You know exactly what each of them are trying to achieve, and which role they play in your story. They have their own voice, and their own diverse personalities.
DITCH WRITER'S BLOCK ONCE AND FOR ALL
You know how to identify your pain points and the reasons you get stuck, and you know exactly how to overcome these! You don't even believe in writer's block anymore.
DEVELOP YOUR UNIQUE WRITING STYLE
When it comes to your writing skills, you know what your strengths are and how to play into them, but you also know how to identify your weaknesses. Your style flows naturally.
FINISH ALL THE PROJECTS YOU START
You never have to scrap your projects anymore because you know whether your story is going to work from the moment you decide to write it! The unfinished projects pile is no more.
HI, I'M CHAR
I’m a fiction writing coach and a writer!
I have a degree in Filmmaking & Screenwriting, and I’m currently doing an MA in Creative Writing, up in the cloudy country of Scotland.
I started The Plottery in 2021, sharing writing tips & tricks, and slowly accumulated a strong following of aspiring writers on instagram. As people came to me asking for help with their writing struggles, I decided to listen!
Now I coach aspiring writers and teach them how to finish their novel without the struggles they are used to experiencing. I'm also a writer at Novlr!
Because of my background in film studies, my novel planning methods have roots in writing for screen! I believe screenwriting holds the best secrets to no fluff storytelling, strong plots, vivid characters and natural “show not tell” methods - and it's the reason I've decided to create this program!
