Writing is an intimate act. Creativity is as personal and individual as dreams or fingerprints. Though writers can and should practice skills and techniques, at heart, learning to write is about understanding your own nature, skills, and intuitions. The Longman Guide to Fiction Writing for Beginners takes you through the writing process while empowering you along the way. Strongly emphasizing revision, it encourages you to participate actively in discussion of your own fiction while explaining what a good story is and where it comes from. Guiding you through the process of growing the story, using the elements of fiction, and ultimately shaping the story, this book explores the fundamentals of character, plot, point of view, verb tense, narrative structure, setting, dialogue, subtext, and theme. The Longman Guide to Fiction Writing for Beginners leads you through the entire process of writing, including prewriting, drafting, revising, and working with readers. Book jacket.
