Synopsis

Novelsmithing, The Structural Foundation of Plot, Character, and Narration provides the beginning novelist, or perhaps even the experienced novelist who has lost his way, with a discussion of the underlying structure and methods of novel writing. Nowhere else can the aspiring author learn the skills necessary to achieve the organic unity of the novelist's divine trinity: character, conflict and theme, so necessary to a fine work of literature. He will also learn the art of narration, how to lock the conflict, resolve the conflict, all the while, laying out the integral chapter structure. This approach to novel writing is not about the art of creative writing. It's about the craft, the novelsmithing, of making a story into a novel. The aspiring screenwriter will also find most of the chapters useful. Completing the first nine chapters of Novelsmithing will provide the author with a rough draft for his novel.
