The Story Cure: A Book Doctor's Pain-Free Guide to Finishing Your Novel or Memoir

by Dinty W. Moore Author

Writing is hard. And most of us—including experienced, successful authors as well as first-time writers—struggle to turn out a crappy first draft and then have an even harder time wrestling it into shape. That's where Dinty Moore, book doctor, comes in, lending a keen editorial eye to the most common problems manuscripts face and how to fix them. Whether your structure is wobbly, your characters weak, your plot flat, or your setting invisible, Moore's book is here to help you get your manuscript back on track to create a finely-crafted novel or memoir. Lots of examples from classic and contemporary literature help you learn.
