D4: Learning from Mr. Dent

Lester Dent
Lester Dent

The Lester Dent pulp master plot has been a godsend as I try to write a story a week as advised by Ray Bradbury. What is amazing is how adaptable it is.

D6: If it’s good enough for Elric and Hawkmoon

For example, Michael Moorcock used it for sixty thousand word novels. Given my love of some of Moorcock’s novels at that length, especially the Hawkmoon books, I think internalizing Dent is a good move.

    I’m maybe going to need to reread Dent before too long.

    I’m overdue on a Swain reread, and have Bickham and Chester on my to-do list when I decide I have money and time.

    But maybe Warren Murphy is who I should try?

    Good luck with the story a week.

    • Thanks for the good luck wishes.

      Warren Murphy is on my list, although I’ve been informed Destroyer doesn’t pick up until a few books in.

        You did see the Warren Murphy set of writing advice Pete Grant linked to one day?

        • I did not. On Pete’s blog?
