Why you can believe us?

It’s obvious that I say, "Talent doesn’t matter, writing can be learned" – after all, I’ve already published a novel and now I want to sell you our training, so it’s easy for me to talk. Correct?

Not quite. I’d like to tell you a little bit about myself.

I had the dream of becoming an author since I was a child. I typed my first 3-sentence stories on a keyboard as soon as I had learned the individual letters.

But this is not a "it was the start of a great career as an author" story. Instead I got stuck. Did you know that I was really bad at German in school?? I even have a mild form of dyslexia, which means that spelling has always been a huge challenge for me, and so I messed up all my German grades.

I was ashamed of my dream to become an author. I a writer? If I’m not even good at German?

And my environment? Whenever I told them about my wish, I could see it in their "loving" eyes: "You little dreamer. Grow up first."It affected me so much that I didn’t write at all for years.

But I was not well with that.

I’m sure you know how it is with a dream. He doesn’t go away just because we wish he would. Instead he knocked. Over and over again. When I was grown up, I felt that I had to write again.

But the writing process has often been a pain. The ideas and the daydreams were always wonderful.
But working it out and finishing it . ohje! And constantly the nagging question:

Is that really good? Does anybody want to read this?

I took some courses. Some were good, many not very helpful. Then I had the enormous good fortune to discover, rather by chance, the course of study for "Literary Writing. Finally something that promised knowledge from A – Z. That was a super important step on the way to becoming an author. But I needed many more courses . But at some point it went bang – I finally got it – and ended up publishing my book, "In love to the tips of my hair". (In the meantime I have been published by Weltbild, edel Verlag and edition Nova.)

That’s why I KNOW: motivation is important it as a talent!

During my studies, other participants asked me if I could help them. At the beginning I hesitated because I didn’t think I was already good enough to help others. Eventually I did, and all of a sudden the breakthroughs followed.
And again it clicked!

Now I knew my mission

I have used all my knowledge and experience to develop a training myself that my participants will enjoy can do it from home without university, in which you be coached individually by me and my team and only learn what they really need – but that in detail and moreover in exchange with a highly motivated group.

I have been teaching since 2009 – that is over 10 years! – and the training is based on my many years of experience and is continuously improved. As far as I know, there is no comparable program in the German-speaking world that offers such a intensive, so deep and comprehensive novel writing lessons and so much on the Working together and the togetherness like our "novelist training".

I want to help others achieve that, what I have also achieved.

I won’t leave you alone, even if you have personal problems (I’m not a psychologist, but I’m a coach with a lot of experience and I know how much you need to be right on the inside). In our training, everyone is seen and taken seriously as a person and as an author.
Here you will find Like-minded people and experience respectful, great exchange.

You always get constructive advice from me and my team. Fair treatment is extremely important to us!
It is also important to us that you learn writing from A – Z and the rules, but make decisions about your writing as an author completely on your own. There are many ways to a finished novel!

In the end, you didn’t just "sort of" write your one novel, but are a real author and also know how to successfully tackle your next projects.

Frequently asked questions

I don’t need a preliminary meeting at all. I can also book my place directly?

Great that you are already sure! Nevertheless, we have to clarify some organizational procedures with you in advance and still need information about you. For this, however, a shortened Orga conversation is quite sufficient, which will last no more than 20 minutes. You are welcome to book an appointment for it here.

I do not have the time! How am I supposed to carve out 24 months right away?

Most of us have a lot to do. But you will probably always lack the time if you don’t take it. It is a decision and with the decision things fall into place.
But we’re also honest: Yes, training to be a novelist takes time. Lots of time! Our participants report that they need about seven hours per week to internalize the material and apply it to their novels.Do you want to take this time? Want to make it clear to those around you that you are serious about writing your novel?

Decide. One way or another. But do it with all your heart! Then you will be satisfied!
We have been teaching how to write novels since 2009 and have had many, many individual courses on offer so far. We have been offering novelist training since 2016 and the difference is phenomenal!

These participants create something in a time that would otherwise have taken them years to complete – or still wouldn’t be finished. Because we work continuously on it, because they are with full vigor, because they are accompanied and because they receive support from other authors.
There is a lot to learn! You will need the two years! Shorter it simply does not go. In return, however, you will finally manage to write your novel and learn how to write many more!

I have already invested so much time and money in other courses. Is the course "Becoming an Author" really necessary?

Of course, training to become a novelist is not essential. But it’s quite possible that you’ll end up exactly where you are now after the other courses. If that’s not enough for you, and you realize your previous courses didn’t do what you hoped they would, then you obviously haven’t gotten everything you need to finish your novel yet .

Of course, we can’t give you any guarantees. However, we can assure you: If you take it seriously, attend all the meetings, study the lessons, do the exercises and assignments, and communicate with your fellow students, it’s almost impossible that you won’t see any success.

We will learn and practice all the tools for writing together. Apply (read: write your novel!) but you have to do it yourself. It’s best to ask yourself how serious you are about this and how much you’re willing to give. We will give 100% for you – so it’s up to you if you are willing to give 100% for yourself as well.

If you have already taken some courses with us, we can give you credit for 70% of each writing course (credit is given for writing time, hero’s journey, and revising). See also the point below.

Should I really spend so much time learning? Couldn’t I also finish the novel in that time?

That depends on you: How much have you achieved in the last 24 months and why does this course on becoming an author appeal to you at all??
Generally, we think, it’s like the metaphor of the man who tries to cut down a thick oak tree with a dull saw and when asked why he doesn’t go into town to buy a chainsaw, replies, "I don’t have time to do that, or I’ll never finish here".
In short: with the better tools, you are often faster than without them, despite the short-term loss of time.

If I can do it, I’m good enough for it? What do I need to know beforehand?

You should be fluent in German (but you don’t have to be an ace in German at school)!) and bring time, as well as passion and motivation. You don’t need to have already planned your book, you don’t need to have read guidebooks or taken courses beforehand, and you don’t need any special talent! Yes right! We don’t believe in the talent story.
We are convinced that your motivation will be decisive for your success.
Of course, in the first module we will also check and consolidate your motivation!

Is an onlinewriting course really the right thing for me?? I can’t imagine that at all.

Good question, easy answer: Definitely!
As far as the technical side is concerned: You can write with a word processor, that means you know how to use a computer at least a little bit. What comes in addition, is not much and learnable. You’ll need a computer with internet access, a camera and a microphone, though the ones built into a laptop are usually sufficient.
And content: Our online courses are not like many others. You will not be left alone at the computer. There are self-study materials, but we meet online regularly to work out any issues. We will see and hear each other (similar to Skype).
So far, we have been able to convince almost everyone of "online" and the participants were totally amazed that after a short time they forgot about the technology around them.

How do I know if the coaches are the right writing coaches for me?

We have to fit together, that’s clear. Not every writing coach is right for every writer. So I’ll tell you a little bit about what makes me tick:
As a northerner I am often very direct, but never disrespectful! Appreciative criticism is an absolute must for me, with clear, helping words.
I am warm, open and a cheerful person, but have a serious side as well.
I bring things to the point, have an eye for details, but also don’t lose sight of the big picture.
Even though I work in a creative field, I am an analytical and structured person. You will notice it in the training, it is thought out from the beginning to the end.

Natascha and Christine have been supporting me for some time now and also teach in the training.
You can also find more information about them on our team page.

How the course works "Become an author" exactly and how does it work online??

You will receive about 3 videos, a script and a workbook for each module. Until our first online meeting, you’ll work through the material and gather your questions, which we’ll then address. We will also discuss your questions at the following module meetings – especially those that have come up while working on your novel project. Moreover, you will have access to our closed exchange platform MS Teams all the time, where you can communicate with your fellow students in between.

When we meet online, we see and hear each other. So we can talk to each other directly. After a while you will even forget all the technology around you and feel like we are sitting next to each other.

When and how can I book a coaching session with my coach??

Since we offer the coaching exclusively as an additional option to the novelist training, it is only possible to book the coaching after you have successfully completed your registration for the training. At the beginning of the course you will receive a link to book a coaching session. Here you can choose flexibly and according to your needs whether you want a package of 2 or 10 and when you want to redeem the coaching sessions in the novelist training.

Exactly how much do I have to pay if I take Time to Write, the Hero’s Journey or the Revise course for credit??

This depends on whether you have taken one, two, or all three of the courses. In principle, we charge 70% of the price of the one-time payment of the respective course.

You’ll get credit for this (rounded):

  • Time to write: 70% of 197 € = 138 €
  • Hero’s journey: 70% of 333 € = 233 €
  • Novel revision: 70% of 333 € = 233 €

So per installment for 24 month payment we deduct per course:

  • Time to write: 5,75 €
  • Hero’s journey: 9,70 €
  • Novel revision: 9,70 €

Now it depends on which courses you have booked and can get credit for. The monthly installment amount for the training is 297 € for 24 installments. From this amount you now subtract the installment amount of all courses you can take for credit.

Example, if you have done ZzS and the Hero’s Journey:

Rate 297 € – 5,75 € (for ZzS) – 9,70 € (for HR) = 281,55 € per month for the education.

Please let us know at the time of booking if you would like to receive credit for your courses (for example, just let us know when you get to know us).

When do the meetings of the novelist training take place??

Our module meetings always take place on Thursdays at 20.00 o’clock instead of. The rest of our dates will be flexible.

If you are not able to attend a meeting, you can watch the recording afterwards. You can also ask questions in advance, which will be answered in the video.

For the start of the novelist training there will be a calendar with the exact dates.

Book your place now!

(in total there are 24 installments)

Note: You can take the courses "Hero’s Journey", "Time to Write" and "Revising Novels – With Fun and System" for 70% each. If you have taken one or more of these courses, please let us know in time during the get-to-know conversation (or the shorter Orga conversation).

Hello, I’m Jurenka and I help writers to finally write their novel project in a way that not only Aunt Kathe will be enthusiastic about it. [No more getting lost – 2018 will be your novel year.]

You dream of your own novel, maybe you’ve been writing it for a while already. You love to "live with" your novel characters, to capture their story. You wish to see your book one day on the shelf of a store or the glow in the eyes of the audience at your reading.

Maybe you don’t even dare to say these dreams yet.

You write quietly in your closet and don’t really get going. You get lost and start a new project instead of sticking with the old one. And you tell yourself that the writing itself is fun enough.
If only it weren’t for the desire to get it done, to finish the novel, and also (yes!) to be published.
But it’s not as easy as you thought.

I know the feeling well! Even as a child, I wanted to be an author, but was only mildly ridiculed for this career aspiration. I kept writing anyway, for a while at least, until I "ran out of time" for it in college (an excuse, of course). But the desire was still there, it wouldn’t let me go. After I graduated, I started looking in that direction again – and got lucky! I found a whole new creative writing course (which, unfortunately, no longer exists) and it opened up a whole new world for me. I learned how to write novels.

Today I can help you find the path to your own novel. You can learn to write a novel that will inspire readers. You can gain confidence in your writing process, know what your next step should be, and finally allow yourself to stand by your dreams (the book on the shelf, the money in the bank account, the looks at the party when you tell people about your book, and of course the relaxed writing process that brings you joy again because you know what you’re doing).

It really is possible to learn how to write novels.
Do you want to be comfortable with your mammoth novel project, happy to sit down at your computer, plan and write, completely immersed in it, knowing you won’t get lost? Would you like to have a group of supportive writers around you and someone you can ask anything about it? Would you like to hold your novel in your hands in the foreseeable future, open it and smell the scent of freshly printed pages?? That is possible!

I know it can be done. I wrote my novel this way and many of my clients did it too. Yes, I had to learn a lot beforehand (more than my studies offered me), try out a lot, and also endure defeats. But in the end my novel became successful (today it is available as eBook at Weltbild). But my real passion is not writing novels. It’s teaching them how to write novels that are ready for publication. I’ve been able to follow more than 200 writers and their novel projects, and many of them have made it through. Now it’s your turn.

The Novel Roadmap course can help you do just that. It gives you support on every single step to your goal. It’s a shortcut, you don’t need to keep saying for years "one day you’ll finish your novel", you will do it.

The training offers you all the knowledge about writing a novel from scratch. It’s guiding you in your process so you put what you’ve learned into practice. In the end, you have your own personal novel roadmap! You know how you write novels! Not just this one, but more to come!
(Note, unless you have an extreme amount of time on your hands, it’s unlikely you’ll finish your first novel in a year! But you will know exactly what you still have to do, how you can do it and what follows afterwards!)

There are a maximum of six other authors in a group with you! You will support each other and learn a lot from the other projects. Plus, you’ll get personalized attention from me to help you get your novel project off to a great start!

Who is the training for?

The novelist training with the novel roadmap is just right for you if you’ve decided you want to write for publication. If you want to be read by more than just your dutiful family, if you are willing to commit to the tools of the trade, to learn, and have enough time to do so, then this online year-long course is for you.
You need at least one hour a day or seven hours on weekends!

What makes me tick
We have to be a good fit, that’s for sure. Not every writing coach is right for every writer. So I’ll tell you a little bit about what makes me tick:

– I am a northern light and often very direct, but never disrespectful! Appreciative criticism is an absolute must for me, whereby I find clear words
– I am warm, open and a cheerful person, but also have a serious side
– I get to the heart of things, have an eye for detail, but don’t lose sight of the big picture
– Even though I work in a creative field, I am an analytical and structured person. You will notice it in the training, it is thought out from the beginning to the end

Before you book, we have to get to know each other. I think that’s hugely important so we can both see that it’s a fit. Here you can book an appointment with me: https://bookme.name/writing flow

What do you get when you book the online training to become a novelist??

– I don’t have the time! And then also a whole year?
Naturally! Most of us have a lot to do. But you will probably always lack the time if you don’t take it. It is a decision and with the decision things fall into place.
But I am also honest: Yes, the education to become a novelist costs time. A lot of time! You need at least one hour a day or seven hours on weekends! You want to take it? Do you want to make it clear to those around you that you are serious about writing your novel? Decide. Either way, but do it with all your heart! Then you will be satisfied!
I’ve been teaching how to write novels since 2009, and have had many, many one-on-one courses so far. I’ve done two of these annual courses since 2016 and the difference is phenomenal!
These participants create something in a short time that would otherwise have taken them years. Because we work on it continuously, because they are full of enthusiasm, because they are accompanied and because they receive support from other authors.
There is a lot to learn! You’re going to need the year! Shorter simply does not work. But in return you will finally manage to write your novel!

– So much money? Is it worth it?
Whether you will earn enough money with your book to make the training worthwhile, I can’t promise you. There is so much more to it. But you will get a complete education, so you will not only write a book, but hopefully many more books.
The question is rather, is it worth it to you?? You get a lot of bang for your buck, but it’s up to you to decide if it’s worth it.
But of course you mustn’t ruin yourself for the education either. Too much pressure, even financial pressure, destroys creativity and joy of life!

– If I can do it, I am good enough for it? What do I need to know beforehand?
You should have a good command of the German language, time and passion or motivation. You don’t need to have already planned your book, you don’t need to have read guidebooks or taken courses, and you don’t need to have any special talent! Yes right! I don’t believe in the talent story. I am convinced that your motivation will be crucial to your success.
Of course, in the first module we also check your motivation and consolidate it!

– Is "online" really right for me? I can not imagine.
Good question, easy answer: definitely!
As far as the technical side is concerned, I’m sure you write with a word processor, which means you know how to use a computer at least a little bit. What comes with it is not much and can be learned. You need a computer with internet access, a camera and a microphone, although the devices built into a laptop are usually sufficient.
And in terms of content: my online courses are not like many others. You will not be left alone at the computer. There are self-study materials, but we meet regularly online to work out any issues. We will see and hear each other (similar to Skype).
Previous participants have always been totally amazed that after a short time they forgot all about the technology around them.
You can watch a short video about it here if you like. It came about in the course of a little online experiment in early 2017:

We will have a personal conversation before you book anyway, so that you feel confident with your decision and I think that it fits. Bring all your concerns and worries to this conversation! We will talk about it! You can book a conversation with me here: https://bookme.name/writing flow

If you’re interested in online training to become a novelist, set up a conversation with me. Then we can get to know each other and you can see how it works technically in the online meetings. Bring all your questions! I am very much looking forward to it! Here you can arrange a meeting with me: https://bookme.name/writing flow

It is really possible to learn how to write novels.
Want to feel comfortable with your mammoth novel project, happy to sit down at your computer, plan and write, completely immersed in it, knowing you won’t get lost? Would you like to have a group of supportive writers around you and someone you can ask anything about it? Would you like to hold your novel in your hands in the foreseeable future, open it and smell the scent of freshly printed pages?? This is possible!

I know that it is possible. I’ve written my novel this way and many of my clients have done the same. Yes, I had to learn a lot beforehand (more than my studies offered me), try a lot, even endure defeat. But in the end my novel became successful (today it is available as eBook at Weltbild). But my real passion is not writing novels. It is teaching you how to write novels that are ready for publication. I have had the privilege to accompany more than 200 writers and their novel projects and many of them have succeeded. Now it’s your turn.

The novel roadmap course can help you do that. It gives you a foothold every step of the way to your goal. It’s a shortcut, you don’t need to keep saying "one day you’ll finish writing your novel" for years, you will do it.

The training provides you with all the knowledge you need to write a novel from scratch. It accompanies you in your process so that you can put what you’ve learned into practice right away. In the end you will have your own personal novel roadmap! You know how to write novels! Not only this one, but others as well!
(Attention, if you do not have a lot of time, it is unlikely that you will finish your first novel in a year! But you’ll know exactly what you need to do, how to do it, and what comes next!)

There are a maximum of six other authors in a group with you! You will support each other and learn a lot from each other’s projects. You will receive individual support from me, so that you can implement your novel project in the best possible way!

For whom is the training suitable?

The novelist training with the novel roadmap is just right for you if you’ve decided you want to write ready for publication. If you don’t just want to be read by your dutiful family, if you’re willing to commit to the tools of the trade, to learn, and have enough time to do it, then this online year-long course is right for you.
You need at least one hour a day or seven hours on weekends!

What makes me tick
We have to fit together, that’s clear. Not every writing coach is right for every writer. So I’ll tell you a little bit about what makes me tick:

– I am a northern light and often very direct, but never disrespectful! Appreciative criticism is an absolute must for me, using clear words
– I am warm, open and a cheerful person, but also have a serious side
– I get to the heart of the matter, have an eye for detail, but don’t lose sight of the big picture
– Even though I work in a creative field, I am an analytical and structured person. You will notice it in the training, it is thought out from start to finish

Before you book, we have to get to know each other. I find this enormously important so that we both see that it fits. You can book an appointment with me here: https://bookme.name/writing flow

What do you get when you book the online training to become a novelist?

– I do not have the time! And then a whole year too?
Of course! Most of us have a lot to do. But you will probably always lack the time if you don’t take it. It’s a decision and with the decision things fall into place.
But I’m also honest: Yes, training to become a novelist takes time. A lot of time! You need at least one hour a day or seven hours on the weekend! Do you want to take them? Do you want to make it clear to those around you that you are serious about writing your novel? Make up your mind. Either way, but do it with all your heart! Then you will be satisfied!
I’ve been teaching how to write novels since 2009, and have had many, many one-on-one classes so far. I have done two of these annual courses since 2016 and the difference is phenomenal!
These participants create something in a time that would otherwise have taken them years to achieve. Because we work on it continuously, because you are full of enthusiasm, because you are accompanied and because you get support from other authors.
There is much to learn! You will need the year! It simply can’t be shorter. But in return, you’ll finally manage to write your novel as well!

– So much money? Is it worth it?
Whether you will earn so much money with your book that the training was worthwhile, I can not promise you. There is so much more to it. But you get a complete education, so you will not only write a book, but hopefully many books to come.
The question is rather, is it worth it to you?? You get a lot for your money, but it’s up to you to decide if it’s worth it.
But of course you mustn’t ruin yourself for the training either. Too much pressure, also financial, destroys creativity and joy of life!

– Can I do it, am I good enough to do it?? What I need to be able to do before?
You should have a good command of the German language, time and passion respectively motivation. You don’t need to have already planned your book, you don’t need to have read guidebooks or taken courses, and you don’t need to have any special talent! Yes right! I do not believe in the talent story. I am convinced that your motivation will be decisive for your success.
Of course, in the first module we also check your motivation again and strengthen it!

– Is "online" really right for me? I can’t imagine that at all.
Good question, easy answer: Definitely!
As far as the technical side of things is concerned, I’m sure you write with a word processing program, which means you know how to use a computer at least a little bit. What comes with it is not much and can be learned. You’ll need a computer with internet access, a camera and a microphone, though the devices built into a laptop are usually sufficient.
And in terms of content, my online courses are not like many others. You will not be left alone at the computer. There are self-study materials, but we meet regularly online to clarify all questions. Thereby we see and hear each other (similar to Skype).
Previous participants have always been totally amazed that after a short time they forgot all about the technology around them.
Here you can see a little video about it if you like. It was created in the course of a small online experiment at the beginning of 2017:
