Roswell’s Final Witness
“We should NEVER have trusted the aliens”
Take a 100,000-word novel rich with history, conspiracy, intrigue, breakthrough science, radical philosophy, a roller-coaster of faith, love, and hope, and give the whole bloody thing away in 300 words or less . . . they’re kidding!
These are the hardest words an author will ever write. Basically, (the short version of the requirements) you have to:
- State the inciting incident;
- Identify and evolve your major characters;
- Develop your theme;
- Reveal your major incidents;
- Reveal the climax; and
- State your ending that proves that you know how to satisfy your readers.
Literary agents and publishers take thousands of words to describe how they expect me to do what they obviously can’t, in 300 words or less.
Well. I think I did a pretty good job of it.
I invite your critique.
