How do you decide what happens in your novel? Do you have enough plot to carry you to the end? Is there too much going on? How do you keep the action going and your readers turning pages?  Learn these essentials to fiction writing.

The prize was an editor for a year -- but only six months later, Lynn sold her first novel.
