One writers novel (3)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

new

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'novel' is the definition.
(I know that novel can be written as new)

'one writer's' is the wordplay.
'NEW' is hidden in amongst the letters.
But, I'm not sure how this is indicated.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for new that I've seen before include "Contemporary" , "Fresh, unused" , "Not previously used" , "Recently made, etc" , "Unconventional" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
