"What do you think of my fiction book writing?" the aspiring novelist extorted. "Darn," the editor hectored, in turn. "I can not publish your novel! It is full of what we in the business call 'really awful writing.'" "But how shall I absolve this dilemma? I have already read every tome available on how to write well and get published!" The writer tossed his head about, wildly. "It might help," opined the blonde editor, helpfully, "to ponder how NOT to write a novel, so you might avoid the very thing!" Many writing books offer sound advice on how to write well. This is not one of those books. On the contrary, this is a collection of terrible, awkward, and laughably unreadable excerpts that will teach you what to avoid--at all costs--if you ever want your novel published. In How Not to Write a Novel, authors Howard Mittelmark and Sandra Newman distill their 30 years combined experience in teaching, editing, writing, and reviewing fiction to bring you real advice from the other side of the query letter. Rather than telling you how or what to write, they identify the 200 most common mistakes unconsciously made by writers and teach you to recognize, avoid, and amend them. With hilarious "mis-examples" to demonstrate each manuscript-mangling error, they'll help you troubleshoot your beginnings and endings, bad guys, love interests, style, jokes, perspective, voice, and more. As funny as it is useful, this essential how-NOT-to guide will help you get your manuscript out of the slush pile and into the bookstore.… (mais)

A great craft book that is full of reminders about what not to do. A must have for any writer's bookshelf. ( )

This is a very funny and straightforward guide to the common mistakes writers make when going through the novel-writing (and pitching/submitting) process. A lot of the examples made me laugh out loud and I feel as if I've learned something (I'm currently a week into doing NaNoWriMo for the first time!). ( )

Sharp, concise, and hard to argue with. Kudos to the authors for opening with an explanation of purpose that outlines how they intend to suggest and advise, not insist on immutable laws. My only reservation about the book is that I chuckled at most of the anti-examples without recognizing my own writing in them, so perhaps the bar is a bit low here, and perhaps I could use a sequel that goes into a few more plagues of written fiction.

Why couldn't he have chosen real examples of bad writing and not resorted to making up his own? Waste of time... ( )

funny and helpful...
of course I am too scared to write a novel now but that's probably for the best

thought I'd better re-read now I'm finally attempting NaNoWriMo... still just as funny ( )
