No more excuses. "Let the lawn get shaggy and the paint peel from the walls," bestselling 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. Intended as both inspiration and instruction, the book provides the tools to turn out a first draft painlessly and then revise it into something finer. 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.

First Thought when Finished: I read This Year You Write Your Novel by Walter Mosley in one sitting!

Overall Thoughts: This book was beginning to end chalk full of helpful tips for the first time writer.

There were plenty of “note” worthy things to jot down and most of all it served the purpose of getting me excited to start writing.
