180 Tips and Tricks for New Teachers

by Melissa Kelly

Looking for ways to fix your novel? Or: Is your fiction writing in peril?Based on real advice gleaned from thousands of writing critiques, 179 Ways to Save a Novel is more than a collection of ideas for troubleshooting your work-in-progress (though it holds plenty of practical writing advice). This inspiring guide doubles as a thoughtful examination of the writing life-and not just with respect to writing, but to the reading habits and thought processes of writers. The 179 meditations in this book are grouped under six headings: Substance; Structure; Style; Symbol, Myth & Metaphor; Soul; and Other Matters. Dip into the book at random when in need of nonspecific advice, inspiration, or criticism. Or read it straight through for a deeper examination of the writing life. However you encounter them, these meditations are guaranteed to challenge, inspire, provoke--and occasionally to tickle or annoy. But most of all they'll awaken a deeper awareness of the fiction writer's many challenges and thorny choices.About the AuthorPeter Selgin is the author of the Flannery O'Connor Award-winning story collection Drowning Lessons; Life Goes to the Movies, a novel; and By Cunning & Craft: Sound Advice and Practical Wisdom for Fiction Writers.align="center">..."Peter Selgin's 179 Ways to Save a Novel is brimming with sage and inspiring advice.
