Have you ever had an idea for a book, and started to write it—and managed only a page or two before the words dried up and you didn’t know what to write next? You’re not alone; many people—including many famous writers—started the same way.
In this book I describe my writing process and show how to get from an original story idea to a complete first draft—without getting stuck. I explain how to develop a story and characters from a vague idea to a complete storyline, and use that as a roadmap that keeps the writing on track. The intent is that you’ll use this process as a starting point to develop your own, that works the way you need it to.
I also cover some basics of editing, and then finish with a little bit about getting your work published.
The book is intentionally short—read it in an hour, use it right away, and then keep it as a handy reference.
