About the Book:

The 90-Day Rewrite is a revision handbook for writers by Alan Watt. Science fiction novelist Michael Crichton said, "Books are not written – they're rewritten." The greatest challenge in rewriting your book is making a thousand small changes while staying true to your narrative voice. In this practical step-by-step, day-by-day guide to revising your manuscript, you will:

   • End procrastination by breaking your work into manageable tasks
   • Learn the technical skills necessary to bring your prose to life
   • Discover how to write compelling dialogue
   • Solve narrative problems of structure, point of view and pacing
   • Learn how to sell and market your book once it is completed

Revision is where the magic happens. There are daily entries, divided by week, with specific reading and exercises for each of the 90 days. At the end of three months, you will have a publication-ready novel with a hero's-journey structure.

What people say:
