I found this helpful Prezi, on the RT Theorem for Fictitious Writing through my friend, and edited it a bit. Its really detailed on how to write a long narrative or novel.

Please don't hesitate to message me if you have any comments or questions, I'm always happy to talk about anything reading or writing related. If you want me to look at your writing just ask!
It is not hard to write what one feels as truth. It is damned hard to live by it.

Thank you! This was really helpful and it made me see some things clearly
Nothing could have made her anything but hideous;yet even a clay of lump is beautiful, when its light shines at dusk
the bed and clothes-stool, the washstand, a writing-table and a chair, a rack of scrolls, and a fine bath of inlaid silver.

Not my kind of notes on the process, TBH. I don't agree with everything there.

I noted some good advice in there, but I think some of it isn't very applicable to people who think are more intuitive than cerebral.

While some of the tips are helpful to some, I found the format too certain (i.e "this is how you HAVE to write"), many points, like Spiders, I disagreed with, some information just seemed straight wrong, and the format of the article itself was a bit cumbersome--one of the slides had too much text on it, for example, so it was very hard to read small print.

Pro-tip: because my first instinct is to procrastinate anything I see as an obligation or responsibility, asking me for a critique is a good way to make sure I never give you a critique.
