I want to write a novel and essays. I want to learn from others about plotting a novel.
Plot development, dialogue
I am about to start a novel, and I am starting to write a couple of essays a week. My goal is to finish my novel by the end of 2014 and to write an essay a day by the end of 2013. The second part (1 essay/day) seems easy; the first part (novel writing) is daunting.
I want to learn fiction writing. I am a former college English instructor and taught freshman composition for years. Novel writing is so different!
I'm fairly new, but so far it seems helpful. I would like to be able to see people's work in print, ideally ahead of time, instead of having to catch it all in a verbal reading.
