Write, Revise, Rejoice!
Daniel Raynes
About the Author:

Daniel Raynes was born in Baltimore, Maryland in 1984. With a lifelong passion for reading and writing he won multiple awards in high school and received a scholarship to Washington College in Chestertown, Maryland, which hands out the Sophie Kerr Prize; the largest undergraduate literary award in the country. While a student there, he studied poetry, short stories, plays, screenplays, and novels. Screenplays may have been Daniel’s first love, but novels ended up as his true love.

After taking a long (too long!) absence from his dream of being a writer, Daniel has finally begun to write again. This book was largely written not only to help others, but to help himself remember everything he had learned and to shake off the rust from his finger tips.


Got a Great Idea for a Novel? That’s fantastic! But if you’re struggling to find the right words to breathe life into your reader’s mind, then don’t worry, you’re not alone. Between e-mails, texting, and tweeting, too many people have forgotten how to write with style. Some were never taught in the first place. By following the writing exercises in this guide, you’ll be crafting lines with all the rhythm and grace of poetic prose in no time.

Even though writing fiction is one of the most difficult forms of art and entertainment, as it is the culmination of story, philosophy, and an artistic grasp of language, you won’t start typing unprepared.

From doing research and forming a prewrite, to pacing your story and writing an ending, Write, Revise, Rejoice! will show you how to write a novel from start to finish with you controlling the shots - plus much more!
