How to Write a Novel in World Anvil

Can you write on a train? On a beach? On a plane?

Paper notes get lost too easily. Hard drives crash.

Modern writing software is the answer, but software can be complicated and force you to work its way.

Enter World Anvil, writing and world building software that stores your writing safely in the cloud.

World Anvil can organize research, outlines, character questionnaires, and more. Imagine having all your writing and your research available to you at any given moment. In addition, it can also build an interactive website that will allow your fans to experience your story world in new and creative ways!

Learn strategies to empower your writing, including:

  • whiteboards (mind mapping)
  • article linking
  • restricted content (monetization)
  • editing and formatting your final product for publication

We'll cover many of the popular methods for creating a book-length work and demonstrate how they can be used with World Anvil.
