DESCRIPTION

The art of writing fiction successfully requires not only talent but craft. This book is a guide to that craft - for writers who want to understand and master the basics of what makes a novel or story work well. The principles and sound practical advice offered arise from Garry Disher's own deep experience as a professional writer, as well as a teacher of writing, an editor of collections, and a judge for fiction awards. Disher illustrates his points with examples from many other Australian and international fiction writers, presenting a candid picture of the pleasures and pitfalls across a diversity of fiction-writing experiences. Ranging across from the most significant elements of fiction, such as plot characterisation and voice, to fine details like the use of tense, Disher's hands-on advice can only help fiction writers write better fiction.

"Sex sells" is a saying that's been around forever and for once, it's true. Fiction writing is narrative writing that involves elements of plot and character created entirely by the author, as opposed to nonfiction, which is based on real world events and real people. There are many different forms of fiction writing, but one thing that they all have in common is that a large portion of their source material is created wholesale by the author.

You'll start writing your own stories, learn to read like a writer, and how to edit. Writing Fiction offers the novice writer engaging and creative activities, making use of insightful, relevant readings from well-known authors to illustrate the techniques presented. This volume makes use of new versions of key chapters from the recent Routledge/Open University textbook Creative Writing: A Workbook with Readings for writers who are specializing in fiction. For both fiction and nonfiction writers, Stein's advice is good for newcomers or seasoned authors, amateurs and professionals.
