NaNo Winner Novel Sold!

Check out this interview with Pete Twohig. He sold his 2009 Nano story to HarperCollins. It was his first year participating. I don’t even have my 2009 Nano story edited, much less ready to sell.

I love his prep work. Read question two.

“I sold my NaNoWriMo Novel!” A Q & A with Pete Twohig

I usually write a couple of journal pages for each main character but writing dialogue is a great idea.

What method do you use to create your character’s voice?

  1. I’m rather weary at the moment and can’t think of an intelligent thing to say. I’ve used up all my brainpower. I skimmed over Pete’s interview. It’s interesting.

    Write on, my friend.

  2. Thanks for sharing this…very cool! I love how he prepares: “I prefer to write a brief synopsis, then break it down into sentences, one for each chapter, then enlarge each into paragraphs.” I think I might try that. I wrote a synopsis for my story already, which I have sitting next to me. But breaking it apart might really help me out. I’ve never heard that suggestion, and it sounds right up my alley.

  3. Sounds like a good plan. wonder if I should scrap what I have so far and try his approach?

    Just kidding….I’m gonna keep going with what I’ve got so far…
