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.

THIS YEAR YOU WRITE YOUR NOVEL gives fairly rudimentary advice, but for the first-time novelist, rudimentary is what you need to start. However, for the more advanced, I'd recommend either more genre-specific literature or, for general information, I'd recommend those penned by greats, like Stephen King's "On Writing" (which is partially a memoir and partially a guide to writing). For the basic conception of a novel and some ideas on how to revise, this book is decent but not marvellous.
