    Writing the Blockbuster Novel - Al Zuckerman

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by jonahmann, Oct 9, 2014.

    I Thought I would share the key points of Albert Zuckerman's 1994 book Writing the Blockbuster Novel.

    "Big Books" tend to have the following elements. There will be exceptions to all of these:

    High stakes

    Larger-than-life characters

    Dramatic question(s)

    High concept

    Multiple points of view

    Exotic setting

    I'd advise against trying to get rich. Just write what feels good, fame and riches should be a side effect, not the purpose.
