Excerpt from The Muse on Writing by Lea Schizas
What you will gain from this book:
The Muse On Writing is divided into two segments and several chapters, each with its own unique flavoring to inspire you. The first segment contains chapters that will help you hone your manuscript. The second segment contains various chapters with specific genres and information to guide you in your writing career.
As in any undertaking of consequences, a plan of action is needed. These chapters will guide you in various aspects of writing to stimulate your dormant muse and to awe your brain cells in areas of writing you may never have known to incorporate into your writing.
An idea penned to paper is just the beginning, a Genesis to a bigger story to follow. But in order for thoughts, plots, characters and settings to take shape, a writer needs to know some basics. We, The Muse On Writing writers, will unravel some writing aspects in a way not presented in other writing books.
This is what the MuseItUp Club members will deliver to you, the writer. And what Chapter One is all about.

1-the overall hook
2-a few scattered complications/obstacles
4-the final resolution
