Publisher's summary

No more excuses. "Let the lawn get shaggy and the paint peel from the walls," best-selling novelist Walter Mosley advises. Anyone can write a novel now, and in this essential book of tips, practical advice, and wisdom, Walter Mosley promises that the writer-in-waiting can finish it in one year. Mosley tells how to:

  • Create a daily writing regimen to fit any writer's needs - and how to stick to it.
  • Determine the narrative voice that's right for every writer's style.
  • Get past those first challenging sentences and into the heart of a story.

Intended as both inspiration and instruction, This Year You Write Your Novel provides the tools to turn out a first draft painlessly and then revise it into something finer.
