Hey you. This is Nearly Complete.

If you’re reading this, you’ve probably set your mind on writing a novel. And if you’re anything like myself, at this point you probably have no clue where to start. That’s fine. We’ve all been there.

Julian Tunru

My name is Julian Tunru – yes, the guy in that horribly pretentious photo to the right. I’m the author of the Dav Iven historical fiction series, and sometimes I’ll eat sugar cubes straight from the box. Have you ever done that? If not, you really should.

The reason I tell you that is because behind every novel you’ve ever read, there’s a regular person writing it. They have lives and dreams and shoe sizes, and sometimes there’s an itch on their back that they just can’t reach. It’s easy to be intimidated by all the masterpieces on your bookshelf, and it might feel ridiculous to think you could ever do the same.

Well, it’s not. In fact, let me tell you this: when all your favorite authors first got started, they felt the exact same way that you do now.

The videos above are a great place to start, but no amount of colorful animation can substitute filling a page with words. They don’t have to be great words; don’t even have to be good – if they’re on the page, you are now a writer.

That’s it for now – start watching. I’ll be releasing new episodes whenever I can, so do keep in touch. You can follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest or Tumblr, or watch the sky for our smoke signal news letter.

Good luck!
