This year you write your novel.


This Year You Write Your Novel by Walter Mosley is a short book that’s packed with tips on writing your first novel. It outlines the steps involved with writing the story and briefly covers the basics of fiction, including narration, character development and plot. It also offers some advice on getting your book published. This is not a comprehensive guide to writing but if you’re looking for some inspiration to help you embark on your writing endeavors, this is it. I admire the author’s insistence that this is definitely the year to finally get that novel written. In his words, “Let the lawn get shaggy and the paint peel from the walls.” The time to start that novel is now.
