So many writers are friends with their protagonists—but they’re not best friends.
Though you may think you know everything your protagonist has to offer, there’s always more to learn if you ask the right questions. Do you know what they dream about at night? Who they want to impress? How far they would go to avoid failure?

I’m Lewis Jorstad, a bestselling author, editor, and book coach who helps up-and-coming writers find clarity and confidence over at The Novel Smithy.
Over the years, I’ve found that one of the hardest parts of the writing process is overwhelm. There are so many moving parts in a good novel, and juggling all of them doesn’t come naturally to many people (understandably so!).
That’s why I help writers equip themselves with the skills and frameworks they need to make sense of the writing craft. Because deep down, we’re all capable of writing amazing novels—we just need the right tools for the job.
Ready to get writing? I’m excited to take this journey with you!
