Strategies and Tactics for the Master Novelist
Successfully starting and finishing a publishable novel is often like fighting a series of battles. You not only have to work hard to shape memorable characters, develop gripping plots, and craft dazzling dialogue, but you also have to fight against self-doubts and fears. And then there's the challenge of learning to navigate the ever-changing publishing industry.
That's why best-selling novelist James Scott Bell, author of the Write Great Fiction staples, "Plot & Structure" and "Revision & Self-Editing," came up with the ultimate novel-writing battle plan: "The Art of War for Writers."
You'll find tactics and strategies for idea generation and development, character building, plotting, drafting, querying and submitting, dealing with rejection, coping with unrealistic expectations, and much more.
