Developing an idea
Deciding on a point of view
Making your characters likable

Finding an agent
This book also features humorous tips and advice from scores of established writers (including Meg Cabot, Melissa Senate, and Sophie Kinsella). If you’ve got stories to tell, See Jane Write will take care of the rest!
