Where Have all the Novelists Gone?

Postby Issemiyaki » Jun 28, 2009 7:39 am

I am absolutely blown away by this program.

And lately I've noticed that quite a few debut writers are spitting out GREAT novels - and in such a short span of time.

But in the forums I don't see many novelists participating in the chat sessions.

I suspect more novelists are using DramaticaPro than one would imagine. If so, why is it such a secret? Does John Grisham use DramaticaPro? Even Ken Follett (author of "The Pillars of the Earth" admitted to using a "spreadsheet.")

I've always been intrigued by the question of: How on earth does a writer put together a novel of such expanse and scope? (War and Peace - how on earth was that even put together).

So where are the novelists and why are they not commenting?

Conspiracy theory: It's a competetive market, and trade secrets are kept secret for the sake of competitiveness?
