One of my best friends just showed this to me. So naturally, I am going to pass it along.
How to Write a Novel
Clearly I have been doing this novel writing thing all wrong. I am especially guilty of number 2 and 4. And number 1 and 3. Okay, okay. So now that I have been shown the Magic Formula for writing a novel I shall go forth and write a masterpiece. I just need to make sure I remember 1. Think up a story and 2. Using about 80,000 words, write story down.
It’s all so much clearer for me now.
