Community Conversation: Your Unique Story

Become Your Novel’s Secret Ingredient

Robin LaFevers

One of the most important—and difficult—tasks of writing is to identify and then tell a truly unique story—a story only you can write. That can seem especially daunting when you consider all the books that have already been published. How can yours fit in? Stand out? Be fresh?

Here’s the answer: Bring your own unique take to the stories you write. Let your stories, full of your obsessions, interests, and truths, influence and shape your work in ways no other writer’s experience can.

Pro Tip

A personal connection to the story you want to tell can help you create engaging promotional material when your novel is published.
