JIM BUTCHER ON WRITING – SEQUELS

Author Amie Gibbons

So, this is another “cop-out” post.  Where instead of coming up with stuff on writing, hashing out my process, or just plain ranting, I gift wrap and hand over a post on writing that is far better than anything I could come up with so I can get my butt back to writing my book.  This one by Jim Butcher is one of the best breakdowns I have seen.

This is in no way meant to be claiming credit for the part in quotes.  The original is found here:http://jimbutcher.livejournal.com/2880.html:

Now you get to the hard part.
