Deconstructing Bestselling Novels, One Index Card at a Time
Introduction
Better Novel Project is all about deconstructing bestsellers, discovering what elements they have in common, and using these elements as a backbone for a new master outline.

I am breaking down three immensely popular novels—Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, The Hunger Games, and Twilight—and categorizing them based on their common elements, from word counts to character archetypes. Each element will get its own index card, and then each index card will find a place in the master outline.

Follow along, index card by index card, as I use research instead of luck to write a better novel.
