Storytelling Spotlight: James Wade

We often get bits and pieces of a writer’s writing process from interviews, podcasts, and the occasional YouTube video. But have you often wondered not just how a writer gets the job done, but what the job even is? What does it take to write a book? What steps does an author use to get from idea to finished book? In this eight video series, author James Wade takes us through his process for writing a book start to finish. James goes about things a little bit differently. He’s not an outliner, but his pantsing definitely has a structure! So join us as we delve into how James Wade gets it done.
