Rules for Writers with 2016 MLA Update

THIS TITLE HAS BEEN UPDATED TO REFLECT THE 2016 MLA UPDATES! Our editorial team has updated this text based on content from The MLA Handbook, 8th Edition. Browse our catalog or contact your representative for a full listing of updated titles and packages, or to request a custom ISBN.

When students routinely use their handbook in the course, they see its value, find that it’s a faster way to get answers than search engines like Google, learn to rely on it as a reference, and are more likely to achieve the goals of the course. And when that handbook is Rules for Writers, you can be sure the advice they find is practical and reliable—with help for composing and revising, writing arguments, analyzing texts, using grammar and punctuation correctly, and working with sources. In revising the eighth edition, Nancy Sommers has woven a new emphasis on reading critically throughout the first section of the handbook, introduced advice for analyzing multimodal texts, and added help for public speaking. New practical Writing Guides support students working through college assignments in a variety of genres. And new peer review advice helps students effectively comment on drafts and apply feedback to revisions of their own work. All of these improvements help student writers—but they also save you time and effort. You can draw from Rules for Writers for planning class discussions, conducting in-class workshops, and providing feedback on student work that they can easily apply. Rules for Writers even comes with a complete instructor’s manual, Teaching with Hacker Handbooks, with stepped-out lesson plans to customize and sample assignments, syllabi, and rubrics from your peers.

Layer Your Novel: The Innovative Method for Plotting Your Scenes (The Writer’s Toolbox Series)

Layer your novel to success with this innovative, simple technique!

Writing a terrific novel is a complex endeavor. And while there are hundreds of books, podcasts, and blog posts that teach aspiring authors how to structure scenes and plot out a solid story, none implement the most intuitive and effective method for success.

What is that method?

Layering.

Novels are made up of dozens of scenes, and regardless of genre, time-tested structure dictates what key scenes are needed and where. Most writers are familiar with some of those scenes: the Inciting Incident, the Midpoint, and the Climax, to name a few.

But novelists need more than a few landmarks to find their way across the tricky terrain of novel plotting.

They need a surefire method to organizing all their scenes.

In Layer Your Novel, you’ll be introduced to an innovative, intuitive method for arranging your scenes and crafting a beautifully structured story.

First, you construct the ten most important scenes as a foundation.

From there, you choose from one of three methods to craft a second layer of scenes: the action-reaction layer, the subplot layer, or the romance layer.

Once your second layer is integrated, next comes the third layer: the processing scenes that the glue your plot together.

In Layer Your Novel, you’ll learn:

  • What the 5 major turning points are and where they’re placed in your novel
  • How to know exactly where to start your story and how to set up your premise
  • What the ten key scenes are that serve as the framework for your novel
  • What pinch points are and why you need them
  • How to craft those essential twists and where they’re placed in your story for greatest impact
  • Why your protagonist’s goal is the key to great storytelling
  • How to come up with a meaningful subplot that will showcase your story’s themes
  • How a romance novel is structured and how to plot out the romance story line
  • How to analyze best sellers in your genre to identify and learn from the layers evident in their plots
  • How to apply this layering method to novellas

Special bonus analyses!

In Layer Your Novel, you’ll dig into deconstructions of best-selling novels across genres to see how successful authors have their key scenes in all the right places, which gives credence to this practical layering method. In contrast, examples of best sellers are dissected to show the structural flaws due to the lack of the needed foundational framework that this layering method advocates.

Don’t guess what scenes you need in your novel. Don’t guess where your scenes go. Guessing usually leads to novel failure.

With the method you’ll learn in Layer Your Novel, you’ll guess no more.

You can write terrific novels, every time, if you layer your novel following this blueprint!

The Writer’s Confidence Boost: Create the inner-strength and resilience you need to live your dream writing life

CREATE THE CONFIDENCE YOU NEED TO BE THE WRITER AND AUTHOR YOU’VE ALWAYS DREAMED OF BEING

You have BIG dreams for your writing life. The problem is, you’re not doing much about it.

You’re procrastinating and putting your writing off and spending years revising and rewriting but never hitting “publish” and putting your book out there.

Enter the Writer’s Confidence Boost.

This book is based on a 15-day audio workshop of the same name. You get access to all of these audios inside the book along with the daily assignments from the workshop, so you can create the inner-strength and resilience you need to go after your writing dreams with full-force.

Workshop alumni are RAVING:

“This was a practical and positive workshop that helped me discover and confront hidden fears and wrong mindsets that were crippling my creativity.”–Cynthia

“This workshop helped me regain the confidence in my intuition and find the strength to push forward. I often have tons of ideas, but never know how to put them out there. I love the calls to action, because one thing is to think about an issue or your fears and another totally different one is to act. The action part of the workshop lets you experience what it feels to overcome that fear or to tackle the issue and it feels great! and you want more!”–Val ​​

“This workshop has been a lifesaver, seriously. The mindset journaling habit alone has helped me become a better Jennifer. Working through mental blocks, fear, and shame to come out the other side feeling confident in my writing life and my personal life has been nothing short of a miracle. I finished a long-standing writing project that I had been putting off due to fear and mental anguish. I started blogging again, and this time enjoying the process. I started connecting with others via social media and meeting new writer friends. I have a plan to self-publish my novel this year and launch an email newsletter. None of these things would have been possible without this course.”–Jennifer G.

“This workshop is for anyone that needs a confidence boost in their writing life. If you’re looking to get serious about making a career out of your writing, then this is the perfect first step. I can say that this workshop was a major game-changer for me. The daily mindset practice helped get all the negative junk out and brought me the clarity that I needed to get my writing done. Jennifer is an excellent motivator & is truly inspirational. She tells you exactly how to combat and deal with the negative emotions that so many of us writers feel. With her help, I was able to structure my novel, flesh out my scenes and learn how to balance both my writing and work life.”–Ania

“This workshop helped me focus on the importance of my writing. The habit of the mindset practice has been a blessing and it’s a real habit, I do it every morning now.”-Judy

And now Jennifer Blanchard is bringing this life-transforming workshop to you in book form.

The Writer’s Confidence Boost will help you:

> Overcome self-sabotage
> Stop second-guessing yourself
> Take empowered action in your writing life
> Bust through procrastionation, doubt, fear, distractions and Resistance
> Create a resilient mindset so you can achieve all of your writing dreams

Second Look (Writers Retreat Southern Seashore Mystery Book 2)

Jack and Jill and the entire gang from the writers retreat agree to take a second look at a five year old murder investigation.

Five years ago award winning actor Rhett Crawford threw a Halloween party for a group of family members and friends. The party, which actually took place over a four day weekend, was held at his beachfront estate on Gull Island. On the third night of the party the groundskeeper, Wylie Slater, found the body of one of the guests, Georgia Darcy, bludgeoned and left in the toolshed beyond the garden. The authorities were notified immediately and interviews of all guests on the property were conducted. It was eventually determined that the victim’s date, a man named Dru Breland, had most likely killed the woman before fleeing the scene of the crime.

According to witness statements, Georgia and her date had been bickering constantly during the course of their stay, and more than one witness had seen Dru slap Georgia before stomping off on the night she died. The authorities conducted an exhaustive search but were unable to locate Mr. Breland. As far as anyone associated with the investigation could find out, he was never seen again. Dru was a wealthy man with a depth of resources. It was assumed by most that he had fled the country and started a new life elsewhere under an assumed name.

Then five days ago, the oceanfront estate, once owned by Rhett Crawford but now owned by an out of state developer, had been scheduled for demolition. During the destruction of the house a human skeleton was found in a hidden room off the wine cellar. After a thorough investigation by the medical examiner and his team, it was determined that the body in the hidden room was in fact the decomposed remains of murder suspect, Dru Breland. My friend Jackson Jones, owner of the fledging Gull Island News, latched onto the story and seems determined to find out who killed Georgia Darcy five years ago, and how her date, Dru Breland, ended up in the secret room.

Jack knew that the five year old mystery would be a complicated one to unravel, so he asked me, Jillian Hanford, if I would be willing to present the mystery to the writers group I currently lived and sleuthed with. I agreed to Jack’s request which brings us to the regular Monday meeting of the eclectic group of writers I call friend but consider family.

The Rejected Writers’ Book Club (Southlea Bay)

Librarian Janet Johnson is puzzled when she is invited—and practically dragged—to her first meeting of the Rejected Writers’ Book Club. This quirky group of women would much rather celebrate one another’s rejected manuscripts over cups of tea and slices of lemon cake than actually publish a book. But good friends are exactly what Janet needs after moving to the small town of Southlea Bay, Washington. Just as the ladies are about to raise a teacup to their five hundredth rejection letter, they receive bad news that could destroy one member’s reputation—and disband the group forever. To save the club, Janet joins her fellow writers on a wild road trip to San Francisco in search of the local publisher who holds the key to a long-buried secret. As they race to the finish line, they’ll face their fears—landslides, haunted houses, handsome strangers, ungrateful children—and have the time of their lives.

Interview with the Authors:

So what makes Writers on Writing so special?
Todd Keisling: Writers On Writing is unique in that it provides a collection of essays from both newcomers and established professionals, providing a wide range of perspectives on the art and craft of writing.

Tell us more about you essay in Writers on Writing.
Todd Keisling: My essay “Never Look Away: Confront Your Fears in Fiction” is an anecdotal look at an important lesson I learned early on in my writing career: That you shouldn’t look away from your subject matter, no matter how disturbing it is to you. Looking away does a disservice to your story, and by proxy, your reader.

Why should authors read Writers on Writing?
Jack Ketchum: It’s rich in the variety of subjects discussed, written by people who know whereof they speak.

Todd Keisling: There are decades of experience contained within the book’s pages, covering multiple genres. I can’t think of a more diverse collection for the established—or aspiring—writing professional.

Do you have other non-fiction books authors should try out?
Jack Ketchum: Stephen King’s ON WRITING and DANSE MACABRE. William Goldman’s ADVENTURES IN THE SCREEN TRADE. Syd Field’s SCREENPLAY.

Todd Keisling: A few come to mind: Stephen King’s On Writing, Anne Lamott’s Bird by Bird, and Ariel Gore’s How to Become a Famous Writer Before You’re Dead.
