Writing is a difficult trade which must be learned slowly by reading great authors; by trying at the outset to imitate them; by daring then to be original and by destroying one’s first productions.
— Andre Maurois
Write Like Rowling is all about helping writers create original and authentic stories while still being true to the mechanics of story.
Write Like Rowling has been highlighted and recommended by bestselling writers Larry Brooks (author of Story Engineering) and Stuart Horwitz (author of Blueprint Your Besteller). This year I co-authored a chapter with Stuart for his second book on writing, Book Architecture: How to Plot and Outline Without Using a Formula. I’m currently interning at Stuart’s book editing firm, Book Architecture, while working towards a copyediting certificate from the University of California-San Diego.
