Summary

When you write fiction, you march onto a minefield. This book gives you a map to avoid the treacherous terrain.

Writers must deal with character, conflict, point of view, dialogue, editors and more editors head on. Now there's no need to stand alone in the battle for publication. Get an insider's edge.

In The 38 Most Common Fiction Writing Mistakes (And How to Avoid Them) Jack Bickham spotlights the 38 most common fiction writing land mines--writing mistakes that can turn even dynamite story ideas into slush pile rejects. And he guides you in overcoming them.

In to-the-point styles, he shows you how to:

conquer procrastination--and put ink on paper regularly
dump wimpy characters--and build characters ready to act
look for trouble--and create conflict for your characters
cut coincidence--and put better-than-life logic into fiction
escape the fog--and find and stick to your story's direction
free feelings--and fire your fiction with passion and emotion.
In short, Bickham helps you take a giant step toward publication.
