Product description

Review

Every November, tens of thousands of people sign up for National Novel Writing Month and attempt to write a 50,000-word novel. Baty, the brains behind this competition, has produced an uproariously funny motivational manifesto so readers can get a leg-up in his race or in the larger publishing game. The key is to lower your expectations from 'best-seller' to 'would not make someone vomit,' " says Baty, who maintains that stress and a deadline are important parts of writing. Aimed at the nonserious, with an emphasis on summoning creativity and having a life-changing experience, this original approach will appeal to anyone up for a challenge. - Library Journal "

About the Author

Chris Baty is a freelance writer and writing coach whose work has appeared in such publications as the Washington Post, the SF Weekly, and Lonely Planet guidebooks. He lives in Oakland, California.
