Throughout, the approach is centred on three kinds of activity:- examining the theory of particular fiction writing skills- analysing the practice of these skills in examples of published work- practising the use of skills in fiction-writing exercises.What makes this guide so distinctive, though, is the way it consistently asks you to reflect on your work, and stresses the importance of being able to articulate the processes of writing.Packed with wisdom about the art of fiction and filled with writing exercises, How To Write Fiction (And Think About It) examines the work of today’s finest authors to teach you everything you need to know about writing short stories or longer fiction.
