IF YOU'RE TIRED OF REJECTION, THIS IS THE BOOK FOR YOU. Whether you are a novice writer or a veteran who has already had your work published, rejection is often a frustrating reality. Literary agents and editors receive and reject hundreds of manuscripts each month. While it's the job of these publishing professionals to be discriminating, it's the job of the writer to produce a manuscript that immediately stands out among the vast competition. And those outstanding qualities, says New York literary agent Noah Lukeman, have to be apparent from the first five pages. The First Five Pages reveals the necessary elements of good writing, whether it be fiction, nonfiction, journalism, or poetry, and points out errors to be avoided, such as * A weak opening hook * Overuse of adjectives and adverbs * Flat or forced metaphors or similes * Melodramatic, commonplace or confusing dialogue * Undeveloped characterizations and lifeless settings * Uneven pacing and lack of progression With exercises at the end of each chapter, this invaluable reference will allow novelists, journalists, poets and screenwriters alike to improve their technique as they learn to eliminate even the most subtle mistakes that are cause for rejection. The First Five Pages will help writers at every stage take their art to a higher -- and more successful -- level.

Zwei Schwestern — eine dramatische Kindheit — ein Ja zum Leben Lulu ist zehn, als ihr Vater vor ihren Augen die Mutter ersticht. Jetzt gibt es nur noch sie und ihre Schwester Merry — und niemanden, der sie tröstet. Scheinbar unzertrennlich meistern die beiden in den Folgejahren alle Schwierigkeiten. Doch ihre Geschwisterliebe wird auf eine harte Probe gestellt. Denn während die eine ihren Vater verleugnet, sucht die andere nach Wegen der Versöhnung ... Obwohl ihre Mutter es verboten hat, lässt Lulu ihren Vater in die Wohnung — aus Mitleid, denn sie spürt, wie sehr er unter der Trennung leidet. Machtlos muss sie dann erleben, wie der Streit zwischen den Eltern eskaliert. Sie versucht noch, Hilfe zu holen, doch es ist bereits zu spät: Die Mutter ist tot, ihre Schwester Merry schwer verletzt. Schuldgefühle werden von nun an zu Lulus ständigem Begleiter — und lassen sie umso entschlossener um eine bessere Zukunft für sich und Merry kämpfen. Doch es schwelt zwischen den Schwestern ein sich über die Jahre zuspitzender Konflikt: Während Lulu ihren Vater konsequent verleugnet, fühlt Merry sich für ihn verantwortlich ... Mit Humor und Sensibilität schildert Randy Susan Meyers den Weg zweier Mädchen aus einer dramatisch-düsteren Kindheit zu einem selbstbewussten Leben als erwachsene Frauen.
