Overview

When you’ve finished the first draft of a novel, what do you do? The temptation is to immediately send it out to agents and/or editors. Wrong. You should let it sit and gel for weeks, if not months. THEN REWRITE.


All writing is rewriting but few how-to books on the craft tell you that. Instead they focus on technicalities.


Writing Is Rewriting deals with the planning and writing of your story but also highlights what bestselling authors already know. Rewriting is vital to develop the finished novel as a quality story.


Published author, Noelene Jenkinson, has learned this secret after years of writing. She only wished she’d known it sooner. Her how-to book, Writing Is Rewriting, is short and to the point with clear and concise writing advice on the nuts and bolts of writing craft basics. But focuses on the vital need for rewriting once the first draft is done, and how to go about it.


Few writing how-to books specifically address the issue of rewriting in fiction. Writing Is Rewriting is a polished book focusing on just that, delving deeply into its use and impact.


7 succinct chapters cover what Noelene considers the important elements of writing novels. The first section is an Introduction, followed by another covering Story, Structure and Rewriting. Then separate chapters deal with each of the three topics in detail. Chapter 6 explores the submission process before the Conclusion and Index.
