The Secrets of Writing: How to create great fiction Kindle Edition
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

So, I purchased The Secrets of Writing as a refresher in the form. I love Mr. Hudnall's other works, know him to be a fine teacher, and admire his keen intellect. One chapter in, I knew I was going to be more than refreshed! It became obvious right away that this is a Masterwork - a book that would define the "How to write" genre - and that I was going to learn a bushel of new "tricks." And yes, the word "tricks" is in quotes on purpose. Because what this book teaches are not tricks, they are necessities. Some of these necessities I had forgotten in the 15 years since I wrote my last novel; some I never learned because I never had any formal training.
I could write all day about the specific things taught in The Secrets of Writing. But honestly, you need to read the book to get the full impact. It quite literally is visceral. So whether you are new to writing fiction or are an author who just wants to glean a whole lot of knowledge as a refresher, I urge you to add this book to your arsenal of tools. It's fun to read (James uses a lot of great examples in his teaching), and it is also inspirational.
