Write a Novel: The Snowflake Method

16 May, 2014 § Leave a comment

Sounds so sweet, doesn’t it? The Snowflake Method. Little shards of snowy ice fluttering around us, carpeting the ground and one by one they form a whole.




As innocuous as it sounds, the Snowflake method has been used for years by people who swear it is the reason they managed to write a coherent book.

Be that as it may, this is a useful process to follow and it may just be what you need.
