Most people sit down to write a novel without ever having done it before. That sounds crazy, but it’s true! Familiarity with the English language doesn’t guarantee mastery of the novel writing process.
What Writers Know
Great writers do one thing differently: they study novel writing. They learn how to translate their ideas into words, craft characters who leap off the page and master the art of story.
Now you can, too.
