The 101 Habits of Highly Successful Novelistsby Andrew McAleer
214 pages, Contemporary
Reviewed by Grace P
Extremely helpful, but contains language and mild sexual and violent content.
PlotFull of tips from more than fifty of the greatest fiction writers of our time, The 101 Habits of Highly Successful Novelists is a helpful guide that will help you get your book from the blank page to the store shelves.
MoralityWriting is at times put ahead of everything else, with some of the authors even suggesting that writing should take precedence over family and friends. Also, more emphasis is put on writing what will sell than what will be righteous.
There are, however, many good things promoted, such as discipline, professionalism, courtesy, and more. And there are portions where authors are cautioned AGAINST putting their careers ahead of family.
Spiritual ContentNone, really.
ViolenceAgain, violence and killing is mentioned as part of the books referenced, but there is nothing graphic.
Drug and Alcohol ContentDrugs or alcohol may have been mentioned once or twice.
Sexual ContentSome of the books referenced feature immorality, but there is nothing graphic.
Crude or Profane Language or ContentThere is PG level language sprinkled throughout.
ConclusionLike any non-Christian guide, this book must be taken with a grain of salt, but overall it is extremely helpful for beginning, intermediate, or even advanced authors, sharing tips that will make their job a lot easier.
