Technique: The Path to Success

The ability to tell a story is one part of being a successful writer, but even a great story can be lost with poor writing habits and technique.

One of the most frustrating things agents and editors deal with is rejecting a great idea with poor execution. One of the most frustrating beginning writers deal with is how to form good writing habits and execute a sellable novel. I promise you, it’s possible - with a lot of reading and a WHOLE lot of writing.
