|About the Book|
A short book, which I think is a good sign in a writing craft self-help book. I picked this up last year on the recommendation of Jason Black, a Book Doctor I worked with on my novel Magic Bullets. I got a few pages in and gave up because it seemed like Id have an easier time taking her advice about a new novel instead of an existing one.So, back into it I go as I prepare to write the next novel! I blasted through the book and am now going back to use her step-by-step process for preparing to write the first draft. Thats a first for me, as my previous attempts at noveling used the Ive got an idea Ill just start writing now approach. Apparently this works for some authors. I ended up getting pretty bogged down as I tried to think of what might happen next while I also tried to write.So, good stuff so far. Id love to talk to you about it more if youre in the same situation Im in. Its a short, inexpensive, and useful volume to have, and the author is a prolific tweeter if youd like to check her out there too, @dirtywhitecandy.
