Isabel Allende tells why she always begins a new novel on January 8th. John Irving explains why he prefers to write the last sentence first. Fresh, fun, and irreverent, The Writer's Block also features advice from contemporary editors and literary agents, lessons from the awful novels of Joan Collins and Robert James Waller, a filmography of movies concerning writer's block (e.g., The Shining, Barton Fink), and countless other surprises. With this chunky little book at your side, you may never experience writer's block again!

What's the most annoying thing about writing a novel? They don't write themselves. What's the second most annoying thing about writing a novel? No, really, they don't write themselves. What the hardest thing about writing a novel? Actually turning your sexy outline into a real book. With words, and stuff. Sure, you've got a really awesome outline, a notebook full of character sketches, and your work space is overflowing with "research" materials, but that blank page is still staring at you. Getting ready to write a book is one thing, but actually putting all the words down on the page--in the right order, more or less--can be even harder than coming up with a clever idea or two. Especially when you might have a full-time job already or a family that wants to see you at least once a month or more. How do these writers do it? How do they find the time and the persistence to actually finish a book? Planning, Plotting, and Progress is the guidebook for building your novel, and it will answer these questions and more. Questions you didn't even know were lurking out there, waiting to ambush you when you reach the fourth or fortieth or four hundredth page of your manuscript. Here are tips to get from Plot Point A to B to R without getting too distracted along the way, as well as methods to find a rhythm and make it yours, and all sorts of helpful hints. The follow-on book to Mark Teppo's successfulJumpstart Your Novel,Planning, Plotting, and Progress is here to take your book to the next level.
