Baking a Novel

Words are ingredients.

That mix together to create sentences, paragraphs, pages.

And bake to form plot, characters, pace.

Then are covered in the icing of tone and narrative.

To create a story.


  1. Love this! Though I do think the reader adds the final ingredient. They bring the leavening that'll allow the piece to take flight.
    Or not.

  2. I have a feeling mine is a little lopsided until editing gets involved with the extra frosting.
