The Best Fiction Has a Mind of Its Own

&break;&break;How do you create a successful story that captures readers from its first page and never lets them go until the final page is turned?

&break;&break;The secret is a delicate balancing act between allowing a story a mind of its own and holding tightly to its reins.

&break;&break;Award-winning author Lisa Lenard-Cook takes you through the entire writing process, showing you how to:

    &break;&break;
  • nurture your ideas–the seeds of your fiction–so they bloom more fully&break;
  • develop nuanced characters with distinct voices that intrigue readers,&break;
  • manage your story's "mind"–carefully pacing your scenes&break;
  • navigate the intricacies of the revision process–so your own edits are more efficient and effective
&break;&break;Combining practical advice with down-to-earth candor, The Mind of Your Story illuminates the often-elusive elements of fiction and helps you turn your creative obsessions into that mysterious yet undeniable connection with readers.
