Writing Wednesday

On Wednesdays, I'll discuss the craft of writing, the business of publishing, and life as an author.

As I've mentioned, fiction, specifically novels, will be the primary example of making we'll explore here. The process of weaving a complex narrative that a) holds together across hundreds of pages as a coherent story and b) consistently proves entertaining is a non-trivial undertaking. At the same time, it's an accessible undertaking because most people have at least toyed with the notion of writing something themselves.

From time to time I'll draw parallels between what it takes to make a novel and what it takes to make other things.

What do you think of this proposal?
