Product description

Congratulations! You've finished a novel. What an accomplishment! Now what? Now, you need a innovative, in-depth guide to revision. Why Revise? Before revision: Nice Story After revision: Richer, deeper-the novel of your dreams. Novice or Seasoned: For aspiring novelists, mid-list novelists who want to break out, novelists who want to self-publish-successfully, writers who have completed NaNoWriMo but don't know what to do next, and writing critique groups looking for a way to help each other to the next level. Revising has never been easier Systematically inventory and diagnose your manuscript Visually manipulate your manuscript to identify problems Transform dull characters into fascinating, memorable people Strengthen the narrative and emotional arcs Sharpen dialogue Morph dull settings into backdrops that set the mood Enliven narrated events by selecting the right details Use language with confidence Add depth with narrative patterning In-depth professional development Plan your novel's metamorphosis The Results A stronger, richer, deeper story, a story that makes readers weep and cry and turn the next page. Novel Metamorphosis, unlike most books on revision, turns theory into radical new tools which are practical, tangible, concrete. Cut straight to the heart of your manuscript's problem Develop your writing and editing skills Understand the critical underlying structure of your story Learn theory as you work Spark in-depth discussions in your critique group
