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.

Fantastically Short and to the Point
I was looking for a book to recommend to someone who wants to write, but is not a big reader and eschews fluff of any kind in instructional material. This is the book for him. It gives great advice and covers the basics of what is necessary to write a book in a year. The narrator is excellent and adds another dimension to the writing. I heartily recommend this to you if you have similar characteristics as my new writer friend.

shorter than i expected
it had some good information, but not as much as I thought. i wasn't a book, it was more the length of a essay.
