The experience and thrill of fast paced novel writing is both amazing fun and daunting at the same time. But in the exhilarating mad dash to the finish line, it’s often easy to forget the reason for writing a novel in the first place: to tell fun stories.
How do you progress from typist to storyteller? How do you create books that are original and fun to write?
From his unique perspective and experience with National Novel Writing Month, speculative fiction writer D. Anthony Brown explains how to find your voice in fiction writing. He explains what voice is, how fears and “critical voice” can stop writers cold, and the importance of attitude in storytelling.
Fiction writing does not have to be a grind, like a day job or a chore. Writing can, and should, be fun both in November and year-round!
The chapters will be posted one per day beginning September 15, and will remain available for free until the first week of December.
