There is nothing really new in this book, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t with a read.
2k to 10k gives the reader common sense tips to make the process of writing and editing more efficient and fun.
When I wrote my first novel I dove into the woods. Sure, I had sort of made an outline, and I eventually built a timeline, but I spent literally months wandering around.
After getting halfway through 2k to 10k I stopped work on my current novel and started scene mapping it. I immediately changed the order of two of the chapters, linked scenes far more effectively, and found ways to squeeze more “juice” out of many scenes. Now, when I actually write those scenes, I will know where I am going and how I will get there.
2k to 10k is not the last word on writing fiction, but I wish I’d read it before I started wandering through the woods. It is a short, easy read, written by an author who earns a living by her writing. I strongly recommend it to anyone who writes fiction, or is thinking about doing so.
