Kathleen Duey - How to Build a Novel

"Art and craft have to hold hands."

Duey doesn’t outline and doesn’t plot.

She suggests, ask yourself what the character would do next. Ask your character the questions, like: “So when you got home, how’d it go with your mom?”

Duey will sometimes sit down and think of the milestones in the story. They could be two chapters apart, or twenty. But she usually has an end in mind (although not always).

Now chatting about the importance of being on Twitter! She has challenged all who are not on Twitter to sign up.

Kathleen has two blogs. She is on Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter. Awesome!
