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
I started Write Like Rowling with the goal of helping writers create original and authentic work by studying the mechanics of successful storytelling. I’m grateful and inspired by the enthusiastic response I’ve received from both writers and editors. Write Like Rowling has been highlighted and recommended by bestselling authors Larry Brooks (Story Engineering) and Stuart Horwitz (Blueprint Your Besteller). I also worked with Stuart to co-author a chapter in his second book on writing, Book Architecture: How to Plot and Outline Without Using a Formula. I’m currently editing Stuart’s third writing book, a multimedia e-book tentatively titled Finish Your Book in Three Drafts.
Because of Write Like Rowling and the opportunities that have stemmed from it, I’ve been able to realize my dream of becoming a developmental editor. My work is fulfilling, enlightening, and wonderfully demanding. What I especially love is that every day is unique. There is no cookie-cutter approach, no formula. I give every project all of my attention and effort. Contact me at csplocher.com for a free consultation.
