"Aboutness": Leash your novel, shape your writing, and pitch your book, with Sandra Scofield

from 25.00

If you are writing, want to write, or have drafted a novel, you are thinking of all those pages. But the secret to a novel that flies is a novel you can talk about, a novel that can be compressed to the gem it is. Learn how to capture the essence of a story in a few clear declarative sentences. That's your way into the writing, and it's definitely your way into telling someone they really should read it.This is an opportunity to get valuable feedback on the very idea of your novel.
