One Year Adventure Novel

As the mother of a 15-year-old daughter who is ALWAYS writing, I am super excited about this product that several Crew members are going to be reviewing this year.  The One Year Adventure Novel is a complete one-year curriculum designed specifically for homeschool students.  I cannot wait to give this one a try!

The One Year Adventure Novel program is written by an award-winning novelist and it suitable for both those children (like my oldest) who LOVE to write and for those resistant writers (I have one of those coming along also).  It is designed for children in grades 8-12 and includes all of the following:

  1. I wish all homeschool books where created as beautifully as OYAN. This is a thorough look into the art of novel writing. It is fun and educational. It makes me wish I was a teenager again (that's saying A LOT). Thank you for letting us review this!

  2. This is one of my absolute favorite products we have reviewed so far! I can't wait to glean as much from this as I can, along with my son. Love it!

  3. Wish I had enough time to take this course. My son – a very reluctant writer- is really enjoying this. My daughter -an eager writer- is looking forward to her turn!

  4. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
