No-one else can write your novel for you, however many ‘courses’ you may do and what I got out of this particular class was the opportunity to look a bit more closely at key moments in writing a novel (beginnings, turning points etc) and enjoy hearing and discussing how various members of the group tackled them. All this, of course, guided by Sonia’s great input which made it flow and spark us off. Jessica, Novel Writing Student
