I wrote this piece for Blogging authors.

Can a novel be developed from essays?

Newspaper stories reporting a crime most often describe the scene, the motive and the perpetrator, generally enough information to create a plot and characters. However, opinion pieces and essays focus on a subject. Is there enough depth in that single subject to from a plot? Is there enough information to create a protagonist and antagonist?

Maybe.
I wrote an essay on "Just in time inventory" once.  Maybe I should dust it off and turn it into a novel?

If a silly fan-fic about a crummy vampire love-story can become a novel, I suppose an essay can, too.
