How to Write a Novel

Want to write a novel?
Hmm. Me, too.
It's got to be easy, right? Just string a few thousand words together and . . . ta dah . . . you become the next J. K. Rowling, Stephenie Meyer or Stephen King.
Small problem: They have to be the right few thousand words in the right order.
Hmm. I think we need some help.
Let's turn to prolific writing guru Meg Cabot.
She's got this awesome video to tell YOU how to write a novel.
Stephenie Meyer, look out!

That was awsome!!! I really liked that her Beginning, Middle and End were parts of a cat. Coming up with the end of a novel can certainly feel like a big fat cat butt sometimes!

Thanks for passing this on!

What a perfect writing metaphor for you. Cat parts. Now that you've watched the video, I'm sure your work-in-progress will flow smoothly like, say a hairball.
