One way to write your novel Reviews
A Writer's Digest book. It's older now, first published in the 1970s, but I found it very helpful in my early days as a writer. Definitely clear and to the point, without a lot of rah rah or beating around the bush.
Excellent suggestions for writing, all of which the author follows in this non-fiction book. Planning, creating characters, plotting, writing and editing; all from a somewhat clinical and highly organised routine which pushes authors from the 'might write a novel one day' group into sending off manuscripts with a fair chance of acceptance.Not that I took his advice, but maybe one day...
Very solid advice for writers. I read this when it first came out in the mid 1980s and it's still solid advice, 30 years later.
Very useful exposition of one writer's method. Perry is refreshingly honest in admitting that his method may not be perfect for everyone. I found many of his tips to be helpful.
I was very fortunate to have Dick Perry (One Way to Write Your Novel) as a mentor in the mid 1980s. I was in the process of writing my first novel (science fiction), and didn't know what I was doing. I read his book and needed help with my novel. I wrote to him via the publisher, and he called me. We had a long discussion, and he took me on as a mentee. A year later my writers group was involved with the U of Houston writing conference, and he was invited to speak. He was very popular.It was such a pleasure meeting him after all he did for me.
