Dodging the Dreaded Saggy Middle

By Sherry Lewis

General non-fiction, Education & teaching | eBook


Every writer has encountered at least one—the dreaded saggy middle of the novel-in-progress. It’s that place between set-up and climactic ending where conflict often droops, motivation wilts, and scenes begin to feel repetitive. You’ll learn how to work with your characters, their goals, conflicts, and motivation to keep the story fresh all the way through. You’ll learn to use pacing and timing to create a story that will keep readers, agents, and editors hooked from beginning to end. Each chapter contains an exercise designed to let you try the techniques on your own work in progress, Part of the Dancing on Coals How-To Series. Based on the Dancing on Coals Master Class.
