    One thought on “Writing to Sell

    1. Emma Sea on said:

      The original version is 40 years old, but I still got a lot out of this. Especially:"The desire to write the editor and tell him he's a moron will be so strong you may have to lock yourself up in a closet for a few hours until you get over it."Replace "editor" with "random person on the internet" and that's the best advice I've received this year.

    2. Andy on said:

      Meredith gives incredibly helpful comments about the building blocks of plot. It doesn't bother with the squishy, non-critical writing advice a whole lot of books do that makes people feel good about themselves, and it focuses heavily on plot to a degree I imagine many Literary Fiction authors would disapprove of. The whole book has a lot of value, but the section on plot and the sections tying into it are the real value of the book. Don't put it down just because he tells you that you're doing [...]

      I first heard of WRITING TO SELL when reading Peter V. Brett's blog. His debut novel, THE WARDED MAN, was incredible, so when I hear that he used WRITING TO SELL as a tool to help make his novel what it was, I immediately became interested. WRITING TO SELL is a perfect name for this book. It’s about how to write a book that will attract the attention of an editor or publisher and result in a contract for the writer. In case you have never heard of Scott Meredith, he is a literary agent, and fo [...]

      There are a lot of books out there about writing, filled with age-old truisms and not-so-truisms. Some are helpful, otherswellless so. "Writing To Sell" was highly recommended to me by an old mentor of mine who had recently started writing a lengthy work of fiction. It's easy to understand why.This is an easy read, full of practical advice. Much of it is dated, particularly in the context of the publishing world and as some other reviewers have noted the typewriter-vs-computer debate. However, t [...]

      Succinct wisdom on the essentials of planning, writing, (the old model of) publishing, and editing. A must-read even if you know much of what's inside, for writers should not wander astray from this advice.Keep your story moving steadily, believably, and inexorably forward from the inciting problem through each new connected complication toward the ultimate crisis and the final fitting solution. Authors should integrate limited flashbacks and descriptions of setting and characters into the prese [...]

      Writing to Sell by Scott Meredith I've been really into writing lately and started to entertain the idea of selling them to publishers.  So I went to the library and checked this book out.   It is a very easy, one sitting type of read.  It is full of some useful information and some t so useful information.  I really think it's a great start on the subject but I'm probably going to do more research since this book was kind of dated.

    7. Barbara Richardson on said:

      Easy to read in one sitting. Not so very enlightening. This classic gets three stars because it would be really informative for a new writer. I learned one new thing. Dialogue should make up 20% of a fiction manuscript. Any more, and the dialogue is carrying too much weight. That's handy to know, as a guideline from a seasoned editor.

    8. Mur Lafferty on said:

      Somewhat dated (gives considerable advice on typewriter ribbon choice, and advises against newfangled computer writing because they make sloppy first drafts), and slightly sexist, this is still a solid book that gives good advice for writers, covering both the business and creative side. Take the tone with a grain of salt and check this book out.

    9. Marissa van Uden on said:

      A little dated, but still a good general overview esp. for beginner writers. It covers a lot of the most common traps new writers fall into.

    10. Sarah on said:

      Good info on plotting for the largely self-taught writer (i.e me). I can't speak to the business info, since I haven't gotten that far yet.
