“Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves and keep believing in the value of their work despite the difficulties.”

–Bonnie Friedman

Parallel Plot Novel

“Giving birth to a parallel plot novel with subplots is an arduous task; the plot thickens like Mulligan stew, thins and more ingredients must be added. The main ingredients are of course the characters, many conflicting individuals that cause the stew to bubble. Will it be hot? Yes, too hot to put down.”

–Richard Milleville, The Passionate Novel
