Is Life Like This?

(2010)
A Guide to Writing Your First Novel in Six Months
A non fiction book by

 
'[Dufresne's] generous, wise, cajoling, stern, and compassionate voice will get you working right away.' - Brad Watson 'Writing a novel,' says John Dufresne, 'is not as easy as you may have thought before you tried. But it's also not as difficult as you imagined.' Dufresne's smart, practical, hard-nosed guide is for the person who has always wanted to write a novel but has been daunted by the sometimes chaotic, always challenging writing process. A patient teacher and experienced writer, Dufresne focuses his expertise and good humor on helping aspiring novelists take their first tentative steps. His six-month program variously calls attention to the key elements of good fiction writing and offers exercises that are designed to sharpen writers' command of novel-length storytelling. After six months of guided writing, the users of this book will finish what might have once seemed impossible - a rich and compelling first draft of a novel.

Is Life Like This? may well be the most important addition to the aspiring writer's library.
