Publisher Comments:

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. 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.

Paul Mackinney, August 5, 2012 (view all comments by Paul Mackinney)
I've been reading Walter Mosley for years, his fiction goes straight to the top of my reading list, his non-fiction takes a bit longer.

"This Year You Write Your Novel" doesn't break much new ground, but what is there to say on the topic? If you already write, you don't need it. If you're a serious wannabe writer and your copies of Writing Down the Bones and The Artist's Way are rumpled & dog-eared, you already know that if you want to write you actually have to write.

Mosley makes this point well, but the pleasure I derived from reading the book was not in the writing tips, but in that it exposed some of his thinking and his process.
