Sample text

Warren Adler, best-selling novelist of The War of the Roses and Random Hearts “With Shoot Your Novel, Susanne Lakin does something wonderful. While lots of us in the business of helping writers and storytellers recommend adding vivid images to scenes, Susanne goes much further to reveal how employing the tools and techniques of movie directing, editing, and cinematography will give your fiction deeper meaning and greater emotional impact. Her book is an essential tool for any serious novelist.

I get tired just thinking about all those fast, nifty steps. Today, editing is a highly praised art form, and with the current tech is much easier and versatile. A film editor must creatively work with the layers of images, story, dialogue, music, pacing, as well as the actors’ performances to effectively "re-imagine" and even rewrite the film to craft a cohesive whole.

But if it’s not your intention to be vague or confusing, think twice about starting a scene with pages of dialog between characters without setting up where and when they are. At some point the reader will scratch her head, flip pages, and try to figure out just where these people are. And that’s not a good thing. Remember, a novel is not a visual experience unless you make it one. Unlike a movie, you could spend three hundred pages solely inside a character’s head without ever showing his world.
