What the Blueprint Your Bestseller Process Looks Like

Luanne:

Renee is one of my in-person writing buddies. Look what she’s doing with her lovely book! This book she recommends by Stuart Horwitz is already winging its way to me so that I can do the same thing with mine. Best of luck, Renee!! xo

This week I am throes of the writing process… .Writing and marketing coach friend Windy Lynne Harris of the Backstory Cafe at http://thebackstorycafe.wordpress.com set me on fire with Stuart Horwitz’s Blueprint Your Bestseller manuscript structure process.

I’ve been working on average nine hours a day since starting on this. That spells exhaustion. But a satisfied–artistic–exhaustion. So, for now, I will let the pictures speak, and when I’ve had time to reflect more on the process, I’ll tell you all about what I’ve learned.

Until then, I’ll let the images of my chaotic organized foray into physically deconstructing my book –with the hope of reconstructing it into a bestseller (what else, right?)–speak for themselves… .

Cheers!

More sooner. Or later…

Into what projects have you lost yourself for hours with your hungry family and dog howling in the background?

  1. Wow! I am impressed with your diligence and really appreciated your comments on my blog recently! Thank you, Luanne! Merry Christmas and happy writing to you!

    Looks like a great way to pick out the right parts to include.

  3. Thanks for sharing this post, Luanne. It’s very inspiring, plus I love looking at pictures of writer’s work areas and their process. Renee is working hard. Best of luck to you, Luanne!

      Jill, Renee is working like crazy on her rewrite. I have begun this same process, although I have to work a lot more slowly at it (sigh). But it’s very interesting, the things I’m discovering so far. I highly recommend this book as something to read after one has a rough draft of a book or at least a lot of word count haha. Thank you, Jill!

      • Well, today I received an Amazon gift card from my sister. Do you recommend a hard copy or Kindle edition…oh, I think I remember you saying you haven’t gone to an e-reader yet. Best of luck to you Luanne. I hope you’ll write an update post, with pictures. :)

          Haha, that’s right. Well, I’ve been marking up my copy and also both Renee and are I going through the book at our own pace. It’s like you have to follow along with the instructions and it’s too overwhelming to read the whole book at once! I can’t wait for your post!

I'd love to hear your comments
