Product Description

"I've received the checklists and they look great. I know they'll be incredibly useful. I've been following you since 1999. In my opinion you are the most informative and helpful person I've had contact with in regard to writing." - Michelle Sheldon

Today's writers have to juggle a lot of tasks.

Probably more than they have ever had to before.

Oh sure, writing was always a challenge. Writers always had to come up with a good idea for a novel, then create a plot, a cast of characters, a decent setting and a subplot or two. (And then they had to embark upon the long and often soul-destroying task of finding a publisher.)

Today, it's different. In many ways it's better: you have a lot more options open to you when it comes to being published. You can approach traditional publishers, or choose to publish your books yourself; you can opt for print media, or create an e-book. BUT - along with more choices and opportunities comes more work.

If you decide to publish your own book, you have to start thinking about formatting it, and getting covers created, AND (here's the kicker) doing the lion's share of publicity and promotion.

I could go on, but you get the idea. Luckily, there's a not-so-secret weapon that helps writers to cope with all this. It's an essential tool in the writer's little box of tricks.

It's a collection of writer's checklists.

The humble checklist can save an author hours of time and frustration. Armed with a checklist to test your initial story idea, you can ensure that you have enough conflict and tension and challenges to keep readers turning the pages. (That's much better than getting halfway through writing it only to find that your lovely bright shiny idea won't hold up!)

With a plotting checklist at your elbow, you can run through the list of 'essentials' to apply to your novel - like character motivation and plausibility and crisis points, to name just a few of the things you have to consider.

Checklists on testing an idea and building a plot are just two of the handy checklists you will find in The Busy Writer's Book of Checklists. In all, there are 23 of them! You will get:

You'll be happy and relieved to have these 23 super-useful checklists in easy reach. And there's even a special bonus for you: writers who buy this book can obtain a full set of printable checklists that they can use again and again!

After Writing4Success created the six foundation checklists several years ago, writers have often requested more. Well, here they are at last, in The Busy Writer's Book of Checklists!
