With Narrative, and really, who wants to read the stats sheet alone, you flesh out the person, sometimes utilizing educated guesses, such as evaluating a person's wealth and assuming their wardrobe from that. It encourages you to look for potential struggles and issues, such as how the person faced war or the great depression, if you can find enough information to put that together.
If you are looking for pointers on how to format or publish, this is not that kind of book. I have been planning by book for years so I was mostly ready to write, but this did give some new points to consider.
,typical academic view of writing and life.
Good for the college student and for a rigid systematic view of family.
Very old-fashioned. So much so that I completely lost interest in the subject until I remembered who and what wrote it.
It is a pervasive flaw of academia but they teach by first telling you what you cannot do.You must understand that what they haven,t got the courage to say is that they cannot write the inspired and beautiful personal history,so they give you just enough to lumber through your project and no more.
As I began this commentary with this is a stodgy uninspiring little book,proving the old adage,There is only one sin you can commit in academia and that Is too be creative.
Look elsewhere for a more feminine ffriendly view and a more inclusive process.
Those who can do those who can't teach.
