Online Video Course

Welcome to Darcy Pattison’s Online Video Courses

Want to Improve your Novel in Only 30 Days?


Writers often tell me that they want to work hard on revision. As writers, we aren’t afraid of the work!
There are just two problems:

  1. We just need to know what to do next. Where should you focus your revisions?
  2. We need more time. Most of my readers work part-time or full-time at other jobs and do the writing on the side. So writing time is at a premium.

This 30-day video course is designed to help you figure out what to revise next, and to do it in just 5 minutes a day, so you spend the bulk of your writing time actually working on your novel.
