Wild Noveling: The First Draft

T.L loves to write, but that doesn’t mean it’s always easy.  After eleven books, however, she has begun to know her trade. 

In this fast-paced little book, T.L. tells you how to beat the inner critic, how to jolly yourself past the mid-draft doldrums, how to sail right over the swamps of “This is all horrible,” and on into the calm waters of the finished first draft.  She knows how to make writing long fiction fun, and in this short book she shares all of her secrets.   There may be swearing. Ok, there is swearing.
