Chris Banks on The Bestseller Experiment

Bestseller Experiment

Fifty-two weeks. Two Marks. One Bestseller?

The Bestseller Experiment is a weekly podcast by two guys named Mark. Their original premise was to see if they could write a bestselling novel in one year. Having achieved that goal, the Marks now chat with leading lights from the publishing industry: million-selling, chart-topping authors who collectively have sold over half a billion books.

ProWritingAid founder Chris Banks joined the Marks to talk about how and why he developed ProWritingAid.

Listen in below to hear Chris' tips for using ProWritingAid to improve your writing:

  1. Quotes From The Episode

Quotes From The Episode

  • "[ProWritingAid] saves you money and lets your copy editor focus on tone of voice, characterization, and plot." - Chris Banks
  • "I spent a long time getting good at writing for research, and that audience, and realized that creative writing is really different. It's almost like writing in a completely different language." - Chris Banks
  • "[When you're writing] you're so absorbed with actually getting the thoughts in your head onto the page that you forget all the things that anyone's ever told you about how to get the words onto the page. That's good because, when you're writing, you should just get words on the page. Editing is when you go back and turn those words into better words." - Chris Banks
