You Can Write a Novel, 2nd Edition

Do you have an idea for a great novel? Have you always dreamed of writing a bestseller? Are you at a loss for where to start? Look no further. You Can Write a Novel, 2nd Edition, gives you concrete, proven techniques to get from idea to manuscript to bookstore.

Veteran author James V. Smith, Jr., breaks down the complex novel-writing process into 10 logical steps. First you'll build the foundation for your book by taking your story's three most important incidents from brainstorm to final draft perfection.

Smith's approach will guide you through a practical sequence designed to keep you focused, organized, and moving forward. You Can Write a Novel skillfully and simply addresses the essentials, such as plot, character, setting, dialogue, and action. You'll learn how to generate a salable idea, develop your idea into a framework, and build your framework into a finished manuscript.

This edition includes new brainstorming tools, fresh plot and character organization strategies, and innovative tools to evaluate your story's readability and pacing—plus, you'll find the one-word key to every best-selling novel. And, as always, Smith's upbeat, accessible style will encourage you from start to finish.
