The Rest of the Novel-Writing Iceberg

“The tip of the iceberg is an idiom for the part that is seen, with the implication that there’s much more that is hidden. In novel writing, the tip of the iceberg is the part of the story that makes it into print. The rest of the iceberg is all the material the author didn’t include in the final manuscript.”

Candace Williams says you shouldn’t throw away your research notes when your novel is done. There are places you can use that material to help sell your book.

    I just noticed you posted this one – thanks again! There are all kinds of things you can do with that research material, deleted scenes, etc. because readers are always interested in the “behind the scenes” stuff.
