21 Days to a Novel: Overview

Recently I had the pleasure of attending a convention at which one of the guests of honor was author Michael Stackpole. I got to chat with him a bit and also attended several of his panels. One of the panels was called “21 Days to a Novel” and is basically a very simple way to work out characters, relationships, setting and plot for a novel. Being the busy little beaver of geekiness that I am, I took some pretty decent notes, and starting Monday I’ll be doing each of the 21 days here on my blog for all of you, my loyal readers, to laugh at. Enjoy.

  1. Sounds good. I look forward to it. If I were to attempt writing a publishable novel, it would probably take me years. 21 days or a month or even two isn’t enough time for me to obsess over every word and detail. I’m just not that brilliant. Anyway, good luck to you.

    I doubt that your readers will laugh – unless you’re making jokes. At the very least, someone will be inspired to get off her/his arses, follow in your footsteps, and write.

  2. Well, it’s not a full novel in 21 days, but it is pretty much everything you need to write one except the text itself. 🙂 Thanks for the encouragement.
