How to Write a Damn Good Novel: A Step-by-Step No Nonsense Guide to Dramatic Storytelling

 

A "DAMN GOOD NOVEL" is intense, and to be intense, a novel must be dramatic. A dramatic novel embodies the following characteristics: it focuses on a central character, the protagonist, who is faced with a dilemma; the dilemma develops into a crisis; the crisis builds through a series of complications to a climax; in the climax the crisis is resolved. Novels such as Ernest Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea, John Le Carre's The Spy Who Came in from the Cold, Ken Kesey's One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest, Vladimir Nabokov's Lolita, Mario Puzo's The Godfather, Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol, and Gustave Flaubert's Madame Bovary are all written in the dramatic form and are all damn good novels.
