Covering the entire process from getting started and story building to manuscript preparation and marketing, Jerry Cleaver's Immediate Fiction shows the novice and experienced writer how to start writing and get immediate results.
Readers will find everything they need to know about managing time, finding an idea, getting the first word down on the page, staying unblocked, shaping ideas into compelling stories, and submitting their work to agents and publishers.
Immediate Fiction goes beyond the old "write what you know" advice to assert "write what you can imagine" instead. Filled with insightful tips on how to manage doubts, fears, blocks, and panic, this clear and direct guidebook will help writers develop their skills in minutes a day. A practical and accessible resource, the book has everything aspiring writers need to write and sell novels, short stories, screenplays, and stage plays.
