The Agile Writer Method
was created with the beginning novelist in mind. We have borrowed from mythology, psychology, screenwriting, and a little project management to create a novel-writing method that is easy to follow.
Before moving to Richmond, I had a manuscript 60,000 words long… Upon joining Agile Writers I was given two choices 1) allow my already written story to fit in with their Agile Method or 2) start a new story from scratch. I chose number one. After all, I had spent years writing those 60,000 words. I wasn’t about to throw that away. Not only did I learn my story needed the Agile Method to become an organized and unified story, I also learned that I had to let go of a good chunk of what I had written–about a third. I learned that less was more. —
