A Peek at My New Book for Novice Writers

October 11, 2013

Here’s an excerpt from my upcoming New book, Tell Me (How to Write) A Story: Good, Basic Advice for Novices Ready to Write.
It’ll be out mid-October, from Inspired Quill (UK)
Part 1: Thinking About Building A Story
You might begin writing straight from your mind. Something you’ve envisioned or dreamt. But a great story requires more than the gift of ideas. This section will take you through the first steps for understanding what a story needs to be complete. You’ll learn about premise, plot, and the ‘what if?’ questions you need to ask to make original ideas into fully formed story plans.

Each section gives the hows and whys of what I show you; you’re never just told what to do. Writing examples from real novices are given, in both before and after versions, to help you see what I mean for most topics. Finally, this section will show you three sneaky ways to keep thinking of good story ideas.”
