The journey of 500 pages begins with a single sentence.

The hardest part of writing is simply starting. Of course, writing is only one aspect of the process. Editing requires much more time and attention. But if you never start, those stories in your head will never see the light of day.

The Ultimate Creative Novel and Screen Writing Academy Bundle is the perfect way to kickstart your next writing project. These 11 courses cover a variety of genres, including young adult fiction, memoirs, mysteries, and science fiction.

The course on novel writing teaches you how to navigate the important differences between plot and story, offers pro advice on character development, and lays out the "Three Act Structure" in lucid detail.

As one student of this course says, "This is by far the easiest, most understandable information on writing I've ever heard. It has given me the confidence I need to get through the dreaded ACT II, I am actually excited about continuing, and can see the finish line."

Maybe your goal is to create the next Harry Potter series. The Young Adult Fiction course leads you step-by-step to transform that idea into a reality.

If screenwriting is your thing, this bundle also has you covered. Twelve lectures help you format your screenplay, develop pitches and synopses, and adapt a novel to the screen.

The journalist in you will love the non-fiction workshop, where you'll choose the right topic, polish your manuscript, and develop a marketing plan.

These courses are taught by experts from Writing Academy, which has helped more than 30,000 writers transform their ideas into books. As one student says, "As they do in other classes, Dani and Steve present a lot of informative material in an engaging, yet succinct, fashion."

The Ultimate Creative Novel & Screen Writing Academy Bundle is on sale for a limited time for just $49.99, a massive 97% savings from the original price.
