Get That Novel Written!

 

Get That Novel Written!
Get That Novel Written! by Donna Levin

In her follow-up to Get That Novel Started! Levin shows beginning as well as experienced novelists: why they must get to know their characters as though they were real people; what makes the juiciest conflicts; how to avoid the "Barney Fife Syndrome" by thwarting takeover attempts by secondary characters; how to use point of view deftly to strengthen storytelling; and much more. Topics are divided into The Basics and The Finer Points, offering writers two levels of instruction. Most chapters end with skill-building exercises.
