TAP043, A Tale of Two Novels: My Experience Writing into the Dark

The Authorpreneur Podcast - Writing & Self Publishing Tips

27-03-2023 • 44 mins

In February, I finished writing the Locked Room into the Dark, and I'll discuss how I achieved this, along with the response of my favourite beta reader. As you've come to expect, I will share my writing stats, days, time, word count and the step-by-step process that I used. Now that I've mentioned that, it's crucial that I point out that I'm following Dean Wesley Smith's Writing Into the Dark method, which he teaches in a course and in a book. I highly recommend that you check out both of these options if you're interested in learning how to discovery write.

Without further ado, let's get into the episode.
