The Structure Of A Novel

Tell Me a Story

"The best part of every author is in general to be found in his book."
- Samuel Johnson -

Structure of a novel - saleable stories
To produce a saleable novel you must have
  • flair,
  • Imagination
  • determination
...And you must be prepared to study the craft of writing. In particular you must study the structure of a novel. Swotting up on structure might not sound as fascinating as creating the world’s best protagonist or giving free rein to your creative juices, but it is something you really should get your head around.
Structure is perhaps one of the ignored elements of a novel, yet it is crucial to understand.
