How I Wrote a Novel in 14 Days: Writing Fast By the Seat of My Pants Without an Outline (A Romance In A Month How-To Book) Kindle Edition
How to daydream a full-length novel without an outline and write it fast with minimal revisions.
Raise your hand.
How many of you wish to write a novel but dread outlining?
How many books have you read that recommend outlining for better and faster writing?
How many of your writer friends not only outline their books but have outlines and arcs for their series?
If you’re like me, outlines give you the willies but you couldn’t follow one even if someone gave you one to write to.
But you still want to write a novel and you believe you can.
That’s great because I’m going to show you how I wrote a full-length novel with any planning, outlining, character sheets, or any of the worksheets other writing books recommend.
I describe how I use my personality attributes to design a process that works for me—one that allows me to write fast by the seat of my pants and minimize revisions.
I understand your deepest fears when diving off the deep end into unknown waters and your struggle with the dreaded inner critic. I’ll show you how to daydream while you write and create twists and turns to power your story to an awesome ending.
We’ll skip the boring parts and jump right into our story from a standing start. We’ll keep the words flowing and together, we’ll discover how to spin wild tales that still meet genre and story structure guidelines. And we’ll be ready when others moan, “The best-laid plans of mice and men often go awry.”
By having no plan, we are truly free to create, and that is the aim of this book.
It’s how I did it, not necessarily how you should do it. However, by showing you how I did it, my fervent hope is that you will use the individual aspects of your personality to tweak and create a method that works for you—fast, furious, and fun—a novel in fourteen days, more or less.

This isn’t just a book on how to write a book. It’s a tool to help a writer write and flourish. Rachelle talks about her experience with this process, and how her self-analysis helped her write quickly. One of my favorite things was the questions at the end of each chapter, where she asks about YOUR writing process, gives you the opportunity to dig deeper into yourself and figure out what makes you tick as a writer. Then she gives you priceless pointers. She doesn’t tell you what to do. She gives you the tools, the guidance, for you to find your own solution.
I’ve read many of Rachelle’s books on craft, as well as many of her romances. She’s an amazing writer. I am grateful to her for sharing her talent with her fellow writers and authors. My respect for her is unwavering. Rachelle, you’re the best! Thank you!
Bright, quick read, great for anyone looking to start writing or to start writing faster.
Maybe she covered this but would have been nice to know how she decided her WIP had reached The End other than the deadline constraint.
Overall a helpful read to spur on my creative juices.
A bonus is the books and guides she mentions along the way. I can recommend a few from experience, and I'm going to look into others right away. I've been in a stagnant spell with my writing and am excited to realize I can get my flow back! Thanks, Rachelle!
Also, loved her brainstorming as I do that and I would stop myself thinking I should save it for writing time but now realize those daydreams help a lot!
I think that this method will click for people who prefer not to outline. I've refined my own process over the years to use outlines, but she certainly points out that you can complete a novel by the seat of your pants in 14 days if you wish.
There are millions of people who can't finish a novel in less than a decade, so I applaud this author for sharing her process with other people.
