HOW TO WRITE FOR A LIVING

A practical book on fiction writing which covers the problems of selecting the objective for a long or short piece, and how to plot a story. Adventure and mystery writing. Juvenile writing, the novel,the novelette, radio script writing, scenario writing -- all are touched upon. There is a chapter on proof and proofreading, on selling attitudes and activities. The focus is on writing for available markets, with all types of magazines in mind. Appeal -- limited to those concerned with these specific forms of writing, not for those who need writing as a tool in advertising, business, etc. Suggest for short story writing groups, schools, colleges, public libraries.
