I bought a copy of Todd A. Stone’s book about writing titled Novelist’s Boot Camp. Todd was an instructor at West Point, a soldier and is a successful writer. His Boot Camp book treats writing a long novel in the same manner as starting and completing army boot camp 🙂
The process of writing a novel is divided into 8 sections:
- mental preparation
I’m going to use October to do the sections from the book covering the first 4 in the list planning for my National Novel Writing Month book. (#nanowrimo on Twitter). I’ll then spend November doing the first draft of 50,000 words or more. Bring it on!
