The Successful Novelist by David Morrell



David Morrell opens The Successful Novelist with the most important question a writer will ever answer.  “Why Do You Want to be a Writer?”  He pushes the reader to go deep into his/her emotional state to answer the question.  The rest of the book is filled with examples from Morrell’s life that illustrate the importance of knowing the emotional reason a writer writes.  Interweaved is practical writing advice and look inside the mind of the man who created Rambo.  The Successful Novelist also delves into the writing world, the publishing industry, and the movie industry.  Whether you’ve just written your first novel or your thirtieth novel, you’re likely to find something inspiring, informative, and entertaining in the pages of The Successful Novelist.
