By: Strange Worlds Publishing
"Creating a long story such as a novel requires a great deal of effort and creativity. It is easy to get lost in details and to lose focus on the main issues. This book describes a process to plan the work prior to writing the first draft. The purpose of the plan is to allow the author to concentrate on the important elements of the story. A major portion of the book describes a method of developing a roadmap to keep the writer on target. The plan can be used to develop any long story. Besides a novel this also includes scripts, memoirs and plays."
Early reviewers rave about the book. It has 4.9 stars on Amazon and 4.7 on Goodreads.
Typical reviews include Katie Postlethwaite on Goodreads: "I enjoyed the book and I would recommend it to anyone who wants a refresher on the basics of planning longer written works or who wants to learn how for the first time."
Ann Chassagnard said on Amazon: "Quense gives a comprehensive, detailed and practical method on how to approach the writing of a novel. I found his ideas useful in general, and in particular, they helped me identify a weakness in my current novel - several readers were commenting on a problem with my protagonist. Using Quense'' tips will mean I can remedy my error and avoid it in future works. I'd recommend this book to any writer looking to improve their work. It shows how good planning lessens the need for re- writing and adjusting later on."
The ISBN for Planning a Novel, Script or Memoir is 978-0985779184. The book can be purchased from Amazon, Smashwords, Barnes & Noble, IStore, Kobo and other ebook sellers.
