What’s Your BMI?

Not your Body Mass Index, we’re talking Boring Manuscript Index. Here is a way to check the yawnability of your latest finished manuscript:

  •  You’ve never had a request from an editor or agent to see more.
  • Your children beg you not to ever mention the fictitious town or world again. 
  • Even your characters are relieved they don’t have to interact with each other anymore.

The solution?

A diet. Abstain from reading your manuscript for several weeks. When you’re ready for revision, cut your word intake in half. Only use fresh ideas and exercise the fundamental concepts about character internal/external goals, building tension, and a compelling voice for a strong and exciting manuscript. 

And get your index under a 25!
