Thinking Aloud
The Art of Novel Writing
Have you ever sat down to read a book and were so enthralled that with the story that you couldn't put it down until hours later? Even when it was down, did you find yourself planning your life so you could get back to the reading chair as soon as possible? What makes a good book? What does the author do to make a best-selling novel? Today on Thinking Aloud, BYU Professor Douglas Thayer (Creative Writing) will give us an inside look on the life of the novelist. We'll be talking about the art of composition and what it takes to be a writer.—Original airdate: 8/18/2006
