Learning the what without the why doesn’t make for good editing.
Too many books tell you what you need to do during a round of editing…but they very rarely explain why that need exists. Without explanation and examples to help your understanding, craft basics can feel restrictive and unbearable.
You might have already begun writing something you’ve had a great idea for, but a great story requires more than the gift of inspiration. Tell Me A Story takes you through the first steps of what you need to know to write well, and how to improve your editing technique.
This book lets you learn with Hows and Whys, through writing examples from real novices. This will allow you to jump into storytelling with solid practices for getting your ideas from your mind to the page.
