Aristotle "Aris" Thibodeau is 12.5 years old and destined for greatness. Ever since her father’s death, however, she’s been stuck in the small town of Kanuga, Georgia, where she has to manage her mother Diane’s floundering love life and dubious commitment to her job as an English professor. Not to mention co-parenting a little brother who hogs all the therapy money. Luckily, Aris has a plan. Following the advice laid out in Write a Novel in Thirty Days! she sets out to pen a bestseller using her charmingly dysfunctional family as material. If the Mom-character, Diane, would ditch online dating and accept that the perfect man is clearly the handyman/nanny-character, Penn MacGuffin, Aris would have the essential romance for her plot (and a father in her real life). But when a random accident uncovers a dark part of Thibodeau family history, Aris is forced to confront the fact that sometimes in life—as in great literature—things might not work out exactly as planned. From the Trade Paperback edition.

This concise guide tells you how to write a novel by using a systematic approach to writing. This guide is written by an author not a 'guru'. A simple step by step breakdown of how to plan each day. No fillers and no theory, just the hard facts in a concise guide. There are many guides about writing novels on the market but how many of them are written by prolific published authors? The answer is ‘not many’. How can anyone write a guide unless they have been through the writing process many times before? The simple answer to this question is they can’t because they cannot feed on their own actual experiences to help another writer to avoid the mistakes and pitfalls. Most guides regurgitate information which they have picked up from creative writing books or sites. How can they give you advice when they have never sat down and focused on creating a novel which will sell, many times over? Writing a novel is the same as any other task we undertake as individuals. We have to learn how to do it in order to do it well. When you first learn to drive, you need lessons. No one walks into the kitchen and creates a gourmet dish on their first attempt. If you want a system to apply to writing a book, then you need to take advice from an ‘author’ who has taken years to develop the process via experience.
