I'm a nonfiction writer by trade but contemplating NaNoWriMo... so I surfed through my library to see if anything might inspire me (counter the fear & sense of ridiculous of such an undertaking, more likely)
I found this. Write Your Novel From the Middle. Surely no more ridiculous than contemplating NaNoWriMo?..
So I read it. This afternoon. Swiftly. With increasing enthusiasm and head-nodding.
The idea is genius and simple to see
(1) how it would work - for the author
(2) make for a far more powerful novel - for the reader
Too late I started highlighting the flurry of wonderful tips and how to's.
Time to go make dinner and re-read the whole thing again, pulling from it everything I can.
(it's only 93 pages but I'm guessing I'll probably end up with almost as many ideas, helpful directions and inspiration..)
Suddenly NaNoWriMo doesn't seem so personally ridiculous after all...
A concise, understandable and friendly guide to what you REALLY need to know.
You've tried the rest, they didn't work, you haven't even read them; do yourself a favour and download 'From The Middle'.
If you're serious about novel writing and actually intend to STUDY this book and take it seriously, you won't regret it.
Also recommended is JSB's Reader's Digest book and plotting.
A wonderful and wise investment, which, I'm sure, will pay dividends.
Now, I have to do some writing - once I create my own character triangle.
In his research that formed this theory, Bell found, almost without exception, that there is such a moment of epiphany in every good movie he has examined, and every great or good novel he has analysed.
Now he tells the young writer how to formulate a successful plot, starting from the mid-point. I'm not sure that it can be forced: but I am sure that when that fleeting moment of epiphany falls into place, it works well in the dramatic arc.
I always enjoy James Scott Bell's instructional writing. He is fun to read, and he has a lot to say.
