About Char
What's inside

You want to finally create a quick and easy outline for that story you’ve been working on—so you can get on with the writing already.

You know you’re capable of coming up with an interesting story ✔️
Your characters feel real in your head and you know other people would love to read about them ✔️
You want to see your book published and hold it in your hands ✔️
People have even told you they would love to read your work, when it’s finished ✔️

The problem is you keep getting stuck.

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, but still...
👉 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...

What you need is a clear plan that makes this process feel SIMPLE.

✔️ So many people stay stuck in the outlining process. They have so many ideas in their head, but they simply don't know how to get it down into a structured story with an actual plot.
✔️ You see all these "gurus" and academics talk about complicated planning methods and the so-called perfect story structure that leaves you feeling even more overwhelmed.
✔️ You need a simple A to Z of how to set up your story without overcomplicating things, and without having to read through pages of fluff and academic talk on the theories of storytelling.
✔️ You need someone who's done this multiple times with hundreds of students, genres and story ideas to show you step by step how you can build this story in an EASY way.


The academy to help you outline your story idea, so you can write a full novel with ease and get that book deal you’ve always dreamed of.

Hey, I'm Char!

Your plotting Yoda I will be.

I'm on a mission to help writers like you finally structure and finish that project that I know you have stuck in your head.

I felt it all: the fear of failure, the imposter syndrome, the perfectionism, the fear of no one being interested in what I have to say with my stories.

I felt so lost when I wrote up the first 50k words of my novel - so lost I decided to take a step back and develop a bullet-proof outline by combining what I knew from my film degree and my Creative Writing MA with all the storytelling knowledge I gathered online, so I would never have to feel that way again.

First step? I restructured my story with ease.

Then - I started up The Plottery, with my signature coaching program - Power Plotter, and have been working intensively with some amazing clients and incredible stories!

When I realized my method was actually working, I decided to compile it into an all-inclusive course, so that I could help a lot more writers finish their stories! Since then, I’ve had over 200 students join Novel Plotting Academy!

NPA takes you from doubting whether you’ll ever write a decent story to knowing that your story will be solid and marketable before you even start writing.

Imagine if you could...

Have the right mindset that keeps pushing you onward with your project
Organise your story from the ground up in as little as one day
Craft compelling characters in the blink of an eye
Nail the story structure on your first go
Overcome writer’s block from its root cause
I want all of this!

Char’s Novel Plotting Academy is a great way to start a novel, especially if you’re a new writer.  It’s brilliantly accessible and provides a solid foundation that will set you up for your entire writing career.

Char gets you to think about what goes into a compelling story, starting from the seed of an idea and building it out in an intuitive, interesting and, best of all, fun way! She takes the chore out of plot development.

Jasmina Coric
Author, Editor, and CEO at Little Lion Press

I’ve written six books and have had a plotting system for years that I didn’t think could be improved upon.

Enter Char and NPA. I completed the programme in one day because it was so addictive. The blend of the worksheets and the videos, which expanded on the reading material, was great. Char is really gifted at not only telling you what to do, but helping you understand why you’re doing it and how to do it.

As crazy as it sounds, after finishing the programme, I went on to write my first draft in seven days! NPA is amazing and a must for first time writers or experienced authors.

Hear it straight from my coaching clients 💕

Femke's Story

I started working with Femke in 2022 on an incredible historical fiction novel. We began with a very vague idea - she wanted to write about something she was researching in the archive where she worked. Out of that simple idea, her story with two narrators at two separate times in history - with one very similar goal - was born.

Eve's Story (@evevanderploeg)

Eve came to me with a story of 500,000 words that came out of her in the span of just 2 months... I'd never seen anything like it, and she'd made me laugh so much during our discovery call, I just had to take on the challenge. Now - we've got one comprehensive plot that she boiled down to the core - which shows a beautiful story of self-healing.

Love it, let's go!
