  2. I must participate! Thanks for sharing this. I subscribe to the Storyfix newsletter, but it comse too frequently for me to keep up.

    • The novel was fascinating! The deconstruction is very informative. I need more practice. LOL

        @Mitchell: I’m so glad you’re getting into Larry’s method. I believe once you do, nothing will stop you from cranking out publishable material. (It’s already outstanding, but now you’ll know what to avoid so the editors pass your book ideas on to the next level.)

  3. Shane, right now it feels a bit like chemistry class: the formula is there, I just have to remember how to mix all the ingredients properly.
