In this show, I’m going to come clean about why I’ve trademarking my podcast name. Honestly, this isn’t the first time I considered discussing it. The last time I chickened out. Also, I will discuss the books I published this year and my mixed feelings about using Advanced Reader Services. And I’m going to come out of the closet as a book cover designer.
In this episode, I discuss writing from a character’s point of view and share how to overcome the biggest mistake many first-time writers make. I’m not saying that I’ve mastered this technique in any way, shape or form, but I’ve made mistakes and learned valuable lessons that I want to share with you.
Before you put pen to page, you need to decide which point-of-view is right for your story. In this show, I will discuss point-of-view in writing fiction and the things to consider when choosing the right point-of-view for your novel. But I will not discuss second-person because I don’t understand its mechanics. And I will not be delving too deep into third-person omniscient point-of-view for similar reasons.
As you can guess from the title of this show, I chat with Dave Chesson from Kindlepreneur about his new all-in-one writing software, Atticus. For those who don’t know, Atticus is a brand new all-in-one writing software for writers launched at the end of 2021. That’s when the reviews of the software first launched.
So you’ve created an outline for your novel, and now you’re ready to start writing. Diving into the first draft seems like the first logical step. First, however, I recommend you slow down and edit the outline of your novel. I learned this lesson the hard way after publishing my first-in-series novella.
In this episode, I discuss how I go from a story idea to a fleshed-out outline. I know this is obvious, but this is my process instead of ‘the way to outline a novel.’ As you can see from the title, this is the third and final instalment in a three-part mini-series on outlining a novel.
