Self Editing Novels

Postby secretkeeper » Tue Nov 16, 2010 2:01 am

No more editing. No more rewording. No more of the nuisance of grammar, spelling and third, fifth, tenth and hundredth drafts. Just write up the novel and the self-editor would do it. Characters not quite in personality throughout the whole story? Major gaping plot holes in need of attention? Dry funny scenes that should really be cut? NO FEAR!

With the self-editing novel, it will automatically read your mind and modify characters' actions as the character develops, delete scenes as needed, and point out all those annoying gaping plot holes that ruin a perfectly good story without the writer even realizing it. Not only are you given a perfectly good story, but you do it without becoming bored with the original story.

Now I know what you're thinking. If we have self-editing novels, then anyone can write a book. Well, no need to worry about that; the self-editing novel bases its changes of the characters and plots on what is actually in your mind.

So, frustrated--bogged down with too many plots and too little time? Tired of rereading the same novel time and time again, only to find plot hole after plot hole? Then the self-editing novel is just the thing for you.

Once upon a time I installed Dramatica software, which I seem to recall promised all those things and more. It asked me if the morality in my story was a thematic issue or a thematic counterpoint and, if so, how did that relate to the approach, attitude and self interest of my character. I said I didn't know. It said if that was the best I could do, it couldn't work with me.
