How do you write a novel? Just like eating an elephant. One bite at a time.
There are a lot of books on individual aspects of writing, but how do you translate that to your own work? How do you know if you are applying it correctly? Creating a novel is a huge undertaking. How do you juggle the forest and the trees?
After having shared this method with many writers at every level of writing skills over my fifteen years as an editor and an author, what I’ve discovered is that the Novel Blueprint method covered in Eat the Elephant addresses these common problems.
- Each time I write a book it feels like I’m starting from scratch. How do I write a book without reinventing the wheel each time?
- There are so many pieces to juggle. Where do I even begin?
- I can’t finish a book. I get partway through and then I get stuck.
- How do I write faster and better?
- There’s a lot to remember about writing a book. How do I make sure I hit all the important things?
- How do I write a book that readers rave about and tell their friends to buy?
