How to plan a novel – Ep 6 FREE podcast for writers

Today we’re talking about writing fiction. How do you plan a novel before you start the writing? What should you think about to write an effective plan? Why is it worth doing this instead of letting your imagination fly wherever it wants? How much leeway should you leave for spur-of-the-moment inspiration? What are some of the secret plotting techniques that you could use to make the best use of your story idea?

Asking the questions is independent bookseller Peter Snell. Answering them is me!
