PLOTRIMO: Revise Your Novel Blog Tour

Today, I’d like to introduce you to two amazing ladies, along with the fabulous program they developed to assist authors get their book published and to learn to revise in a manner that will make manuscripts shine!


Jill Corcoran is the founder of Jill
Corcoran LiteraryAgency and
co-founder of A Path to Publishing



Martha Alderson, author of The Plot 
Whisperer: Secrets of Story Structure 
Any Writer Can Master, is
 known as “The Plot Whisperer.”  



Congratulations on creating an entire story from beginning to end. When you finish celebrating, it is time to revise: to re-envision and rewrite what you’ve written into a novel that agents, editors and readers will devour.

That’s where Martha and Jill come into the picture. They have developed several programs to help you. If you’ve written a draft of a novel, you’ve accomplished what many writers merely talk about and dream of doing. 

I've taken their CONCEPT WORKSHOP and have rented their videos for revision. WIth Martha's knowledge of plot and Jill's quick grasp of concepts, together they are the experts you need to turn your manuscript into a published piece.


Thanks to the PlotWriMo Revise Your Novel in a Month videos, all writers can find something to improve their chances for publication. The videos take you step by step through the revision process. I am currently using it to revise my YA Contemporary novel.  

THINGS THAT YOU CAN LEARN FROM THE PlotWriMo VIDEOS
.    How to revise your story concept and develop your characters
.    How to approach your revision
.    Character transformation and goals

The PLOTRIMO: Revise Your Novel is a program that will teach you the skills needed to make your plot an outstanding one.

Before you undertake a major rewrite, first consider your story from all angles with the help of step-by-step instruction and daily exercises.

You know you’re ready to rewrite when you’ve checked all the essential elements for creating an exciting story with compelling characters and a meaningful plot.

What’s that you say? You don’t write novels. Your dream is to be a published picture book author. Martha and Jill offer something for you, too.

How to Write and Sell a Picture Book with a Plot
7 videos explain how to plot, write and sell picture books and provide exercises that immediately integrate concepts into your own unique story.

Learn about the types of picture books, examples of character-driven and action-driven picture books, and how to develop winning picture book concepts.
