How Not to Write a Novel PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

How Not to Write a Novel free pdf Despite the abundance of writing how-to books, unpublished writers seem to repeat the same mistakes again and again, from making their protagonists into cooler versions of themselves to describing a character preparing and eating breakfast for fifteen pages. Unlike most writing books, this is not a point-by-point plot formula for success. Instead, by using humor combined with straightforward advice, this guide provides expert trouble-shooting that can be immediately put into practice to get any manuscript out of the slush pile and into the book stores.
