Penntertainment

Her Writing Process: No Outline? (video)

upenn and Laura Dave

Recently, I covered Penn alum author Laura Dave (C’99) and her books The Divorce Party, London is the Best City in America and now her new book The First Husband (read an excerpt here).

After the jump, check out a new video from Laura and find out:

  • how she does research for her books before she starts writing
  • her alternate approach to writing without an outline
  • how long (and how many drafts) it takes her to write a book
And for you Los Angelinos, tonight Laura will be doing a reading, Q&A and signing at the Barnes and Nobles in The Grove at 7 pm.


How many of you writers out there write like Laura?  Comment below and share your writing style!
