This is the last video for Novel Boot Camp. I hope you guys had a great time and learned a lot. I had a ton of fun making the videos and critiquing your work. Thanks for all of your support!
Comment Question: Do you find that your characters are who you want them to be in the first draft or do you usually need to do a lot of editing?

Thank you so much for all your great tips throughout this month.
Thank you so much for your time and expertise! This was my first novel boot camp with you and, hopefully, not my last. I am going to go back through the videos again, as I find that you offer so much information that it is impossible to absorb it all in one go-round. Best wishes to you and Toby!
Hi there, Ellen!
Many great thanks for all your efforts! I’m totally happy to join your lessons – it’s taking me to new hights in my writing (or my editing actually.)
I love the way your tipps are coming so easily and take us a step further in our novels…
Such great advice. Thank you
Thanks for all your help, Ellen!
Noooooooooooo! please don’t leave us! Your bootcamp has been great – some major insights into what is happening with the novel I’m writing and some practical solutions, too. Thanks for being so generous with your time and insight
Yes. Don’t disappear. I discovered you late…but love your take on the standard ‘rules of writing’ … which I break as often as possible *chuckle*
