The Classic Guide to Writing Fiction
So, you want to be a writer..
This invaluable guide is a book to encourage and inspire as well as instruct. It offers practical advice on everything the novice writer needs to know - from where ideas come from to submitting a finished manuscript to a publisher - and provides an illuminating insight into the writer's craft.
Included in this revised and expanded edition are two new appendices: the first exploring the motivations of the fiction writer, the second giving an intimate glimpse of the creative process through the writing (and rewriting) of one particular story.
