    Excellent resource not just for NewbiesI'm glad to have added this book to my collection of writing resources The book is comprehensive starting out from setting up a writing workspace all the way to the how to's of publication The book is organized into self contained logical sections so you can browse it like a smorgasbord choosing what you want when you need it There are great details for the beginning writer but also wonderful reminders juicy tidbits and food for thought for seasoned writers I learned new things reading it even though I've been writing and absorbing info for 10 years The book covers what NOT to do as well as what to do nitty gritty do's and don'ts Learn them in this book and avoid awkward mistakes I love the really cool checklists for novels as well as writing exercises that make writers think about what's going on with their themes characters and plots I am SO going to use the Using Your Hook to Shape Your Story section with its handy checklist for my next novel The sidebars include tips from well known YA authors and agents which are fun and informative I also love this intro sentence as Deborah's goal for what writers can take away from the book how to think like a kid but strategize your novel and your career like an adult

    Well I had no intention of reading this book because I hated the title but when an editor rejected my manuscript and told me I should read this book I let out a sigh and conceededIt's a very uick and easy read maybe because it was written for DUMMIES please note intended sarcasm I read it in less than a day and although I was resistant I came away from it with about twenty pages flagged The author gives basic and easy tips for improving your writing and tackling that tricky topic of VOICE I'm excited to get to work revising again and I will definitely employ some of her suggested techniues

    Show don't tell It is by far the most important tip I'm keeping close after reading this bookThe book is actually really useful for anyone interested in the skill of writing Most if not all elements of writing YA fiction are discussed and portrayed with examples The book is written for adults yet it is also perfectly applicable to teens like myself I personally read it because I intend to write a novel myself but there are also plenty of general writing and scening tips in there for any other form of writingAnd yes at some points the book gets a bit dull to read but that is to be expected from a tutoring book Overall I found it greatly interesting and enlightening to read


  4. Mary Ellen Mary Ellen says:

    I definitely enjoyed this book It is a great writing guide and story development guide It is a good way to get the ball rolling if you don't know where to start The only thing I didn't care for was that it was a little dated A lot of young adult fiction has changed since this book was written which isn't the author's fault but I would love to see her right a new book based on current young adult literature A lot of the information was geared a little towards middle grade rather than young adult But that being said the same author also wrote a guide on new adult fiction which I absolutely love I highly recommend both guides


  5. Lady Entropy Lady Entropy says:

    Not as informative or organized as Writing Novels For Dummies it's still full of interesting information and a must read for people planning on writing YA fictionIt dedicates WAY too much time almost a fifth of the book to promoting bookinding agentsorking with editorsending your submission maybe that could be left for Book Publishing For Dummies? I would have liked to see in working the plot and revising rather than general guidelinesStill worth the money


  6. Cyndi Cyndi says:

    This is a fairly comprehensive book and there is probably a little something for everyone It started off with general stuff about approaching writing that I didn't find particularly useful although another writer might As it got into the nitty gritty issues of writing it dealt with both common stuff about writing in general which I didn't really need but also about specifics on writing in a novel format which I didn't necessarily have already The latter section is on publishing different types of elements of publishing contracts marketing and using conferences Stuff that isn't useful to me at this stage of writing my book but that is useful to me in helping my husband with hisOverall a good resource but unfortunately uite dated This edition is from 2011 So talking about the publishing and websites and social media and all of that is really not as useful as it could be But there's still a lot in there Hopefully there will be a newer addition at some point If not already But this was the one in the library


  7. Elissa Matthews Elissa Matthews says:

    Surprisingly a very good reference and reminder of all the aspects to keep track of in writing and publishing a creative work Comprehensive if abbreviated coverage checklists and reminders pointers to areas where deeper insight is beyond the scope of the book Instructions and recipes for approaching problems without diving into techniues for solving them


  8. Kaylynn Kaylynn says:

    Informative I appreciate how easy to read it is This is a book with helpful breakdowns of what to do and look out for when writing YA Fiction
