How to Write a Book in Three Days

(via Wet Asphalt)

A friend of mine showed me link to a page briefly explaining Michael Moorcock’s writing structure, which he detailed in the book “Death is No Obstacle” (sadly, now out of print). He wrote the “Elric of Melnibon√©” stories and many other books.

While I’m not super familiar with his work, I am kind of fascinated by what he lays out. It resembles Lester Dent’s Master Plot Structure.

Both of them are the sort of thing I’d like to screw around with for National Novel Writing Month. I haven’t read much pulp since I was a little girl thumbing through my mother’s copies of Ellery Queen Magazine, but it could be the sort of thing to perhaps alleviate my prose fiction writing woes. Plus it just looks like fun.
