The Five Tricks I Used to Write My First Novel


I considered myself a short story writer. The kind of guy who quietly cranks out a story a week. Opens the loop, closes the loop. In and out like a high-speed getaway. Stories that slap you in the face and run into the distance, leaving you sore and red-cheeked, wondering what the hell just happened.
But somehow … I finished writing my first novel.

In this show I talk about the five tricks I used to get it done.
