HOW TO WRITE YOUR FIRST FIRST DRAFT!


How do you write your very FIRST first draft? How do you know what's going to work for you--and what won't--when you've never written a book before? Last week, a few of you left comments asking about how you know what to include (and what not to include) in a first draft. I hope this answers your question!


And HEY, while you're here, don't forget to download your *free* My FIRST First Draft Checklist! It includes everything I mentioned in this episode, plus a little bonus project that'll help you get a head start on revisions as you draft. :) https://mailchi.mp/ef6744e74d02/myfirstfirstdraftchecklist


Are you a plotter? (Or perhaps just a little bit plot-curious?) My *FREE* “From Premise to Plot” guide gets into crafting the perfect elevator pitch, using trends to sell (not write) your novel, and several different outlining methods to help you turn your idea into a plot. Download it here: https://www.michelleschusterman.com/freebies


How does your writing compare to JK Rowling’s or Stephen King’s? How does your book compare to those published in the genre? Autocrit can tell you! (It can also line edit the $#^@!! out of your draft!) https://AutoCrit.samcart.com/referral/RjUnsEmf/bpAYI1wqGul9zDz3
