The book that makes fun of "How to" books 23. März 2000
Von Caresse Mandylor - Veröffentlicht auf
I heard about How to Fail As aNovelist from another writer and purchased my own personal copy less than a week later. Michael Crawley is hilariously funny, making this a page turner that has to be read from cover to cover without stopping. On the last page, you want nothing more than to start over again. The novel is so entertaining it's hard to believe you are actually learning something...but you definitely are!There is not a better writing teacher for new writers to turn to than Mr Crawley. I was going to keep it on my writing desk, to use when I'm sweating through my own novel but I have to go get another copy. I loaned it to a friend and she refuses to return it.Caresse

Writing is a serious business that must also be joyful in order to prevent a descent into madness. So, what better way to avoid the asylum for wannabe authors than to learn how to get published by boning up on "How to Fail As A Novelist"?
Michael Crawley's clever approach to teaching tells us, for example, how to hide our natural style "...beneath numerous layers of crud by using these simple techniques.
1) Open as many sentences as possible with 'ing' words..."
Just when you've begun to laugh at the advice of this twisted teacher, Mr. Crawley goes on in the next half of the sentence to truly teach, "Open as many sentences as possible with 'ing' words, the ones the grammarians call gerunds..."
And so on. It's really a painless way to get the fundamentals of writing publishable material. I strongly advise anyone who wants to be a real writer to pick up "How to Fail As A Novelist". The book is packed with pearls of wisdom focused on techniques and style that will (not) get you published. Simply refuse to apply the many principles outlined in this humourous book and you are guaranteed to fail. Get it? Good!
I keep "How to Fail As A Novelist" with my other must-have reference books, "ABC of Reading" (Ezra Pound),"One Writer's Beginnings" (Eudora Welty), "Word Power Made Easy" (Norman Lewis) "The Wordsworth Dictionary of Sex" (Wordsworth Reference Series) and "More Baby Names" (Globe Digest Series). I suggest you do the same.

Ermintrude The Marvel 22. März 2000
Von G. Nagel - Veröffentlicht auf
This is the first how-to or should I say, how-not-to book Ihave ever read like an exciting novel. It has adventure, humor, (lotsof humor), love, deciet, lies, tragedy (oh, the tragedy of being published!), and all the great makings of a really quick read. The Author imparts words of wisdom on selling your writing in a way that even the simple mind can follow.
I found myself reading and writing all at the same time. Saying to myself, "Oh my God! I have an unpublishable story, better fix it quick!"
If you never want to sit through another boring "Yawn..." how to write book, I highly reccomend this one. I couldn't put it down. I even took it to work with me. I have even reread several chapters. The Author gives really clear examples of good writing and bad writing on every subject. It is virtually dummy proof.
I guess you are wondering about the title of my review. Well, I will say this, poor Ermintrude plays the part of many roles and the poor girl only gets one or two coffee breaks. You will have to buy the book if you want to know more.
My reccomendation: spend the money, it is well worth it!

How To Get Money For Your Writing 2. März 2000
Von Sue - Veröffentlicht auf
The dry wit and charm of Michael shines through. I was laughing and learning all the way through the entire book.
Making notes and scribbling quotes to use later, as I could not put this book down.
I would recommend this brilliant book to anyone who is serious about writing to make money.
As a novice I enjoy writing.
I will now find markets to buy my writing and only write to fit them.
Michael is a self taught writer and an inspiration to all of us who like to make money doing what we love to do.
His methods are sound and he proves they work.
I am already receiving e-mails from web-sites who want my work..and they will pay.
Please,if you are at all serious about making money and writing for a this delightful book.
After you finish, go out and buy for all your friends and family. Only if they want to make money while writing.
Bravo, Michael Crawley. Such an inspiration to all writers.
A delightful addition to my library of books.
Michael's book is the only one that taught me how to make money though!
Enjoy it everyone. None of you will be sorry you purchased this book.

A step beyond a textbook 23. März 2000
Von Martha Davis - Veröffentlicht auf
I was reading before I started kindergarden and wanted to write since junior high. I lost all confidence in myself with the beauty of the books around me. "I'll never be that good," I constantly told myself and the difficult nature of most writing instructional books only made it worse. They were so complicated and hard to understand for the beginning writer. Then I was introduced to Michael Crawley's How to Fail As a Novelist and it was life changing. He explains how to write by the mistakes new writers make and he does it in such a humorous way that you never realize you are reading a 'textbook.' Where's my pen? I'm ready to start...
