Good for the beginning writer
As a novice writer, I eagerly search out books that might help me produce quality work. "This Year You Write Your Novel" was definitely a title that caught my attention. Walter Mosley presents in 110 or so pages how a new writer should structure their time. He talks about first and third person narratives and the lesser known omniscient narrator and the pros and cons about each.
One of the things I really enjoyed about this book is when the author would show examples by writing a short piece and then rewriting it to give it some flair to underscore the point he was try to make.
He really states the importance of setting time aside every day to write.
I thought that this book was an excellent bedside table reference book. It touched on the key subjects but didn't delve deeper. It was a quick read and the reader could definitely refer back to it when writing. If you are loooking for more indepth writing techniques, this isn't the book for you. It is good for those who don't want to be overwhelmed and want someone to hold their hand while they start out.
