Writing Hurts Like Hell: How to Write a Novel When You Don't Have Time to Write a Short Story
Biff Mitchell, author
Written for busy people like you who have always wanted to write a book, Writing Hurts Like Hell: How to Write a Novel When You Don't Have Time to Write a Short Story, guides you step-by-stop through the process of writing a novel from conceiving an idea, to developing the idea into a well-plotted story, and then revising your finished first draft into a manuscript that's ready to send to an agent or publisher. This workshop-in-a-book breaks the entire process into manageable tasks that will fit into even the busiest of schedules and allow you to set up a writing regimen that suits your needs. The concepts and approaches in this book were developed over a period of ten years of teaching writing workshops through college extension programs and literary workshops, including the Maritime Writers' Workshop. As a result, this book is full of activities that will have you opening doors to your creativity within hours.
