Several years ago I had the pleasure of taking one of Gordon's classes. One of the things that impacted my writing is the wonderful way he addressed characterization. I'm so glad he's included this in "Novel Writing Made Simple". It opened up a whole new aspect in fleshing out characters for my stories and novel.

Of the hundreds of how-to resources for writers available, this book is at the top of my list of keepers. It doesn't ramble on and on and take forever to actually get to the heart of what a writer is looking for. All of the basic information is there, with charts and examples. As a list lover, I especially liked the list of Unnecessary Words and Redundancies, as well as the list of Misused Words. My recommendation: buy it, read it, use it, and keep it handy.

Novel Writing Made Simple hits all the high points of how to write a novel-and it isn't five hundred pages long. It gives you practical examples of how to create believable characters, set the scene and drive the plot. There's an excellent explanation and diagram of a story arc, and tips how to brainstorm for new ideas and subplots. Kessler uses full page examples to show how your novel should look when you submit it to an agent or editor and discusses what is expected of new writers as they try to enter the world of publishing. There's a helpful appendix of terms and definitions. Writing the novel is your job and this book gives you the tools to write it.
