Listing Detail Tabs

Despite the abundance of writing how-to books, unpublished writers seem to repeat the same mistakes again and again, from making their protagonists into cooler versions of themselves to describing a character preparing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.Author BiographySandra Newman is the author of The Only Good Thing Anyone Has Ever Done (HarperCollins) and the forthcoming Cake (Random House).
