1.4 – The Writing Process

In this episode I . . .

Explain how different writers create in different ways and talk about:

-Seat-of-the-Pants writers compared to Outliners compared to Hybrid writers.
-My writing process: I need to outline a little, otherwise—squirrel!—I get lost.
-How I storyboard my novels before writing my first draft.
-The benefits of learning to write fast.
-National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and how it can help you with your writing craft.

Writing novels is an art form. No two people do it exactly the same way. So gather tools, but if something doesn’t work, throw it out of your tool box. You don’t need it.

Do what works for you.
