Then I got this book. It jerked me right back to the basics. It used words I havent seen since I was in school-- protagonists, antagonists, acts, scenes and more. It was right to the point, instead of jerking me around page after page. And it talked about the hard work-- the work I have been doing-- which made me feel like I wasn't such an alien within a world of other faster Authors after all. However, it did give me a more simplified way of doing things. (I will be using those index cards, William Bernhardt!!!!)
This book gives everything that it promises. And all the other writing books, written by William, are on my wish list. I havent made a living out of this yet -- even though I have years and years of trying under my belt-- but I am going into my next novel with this book on my mind.
I already feel like I am more organized, and the path to that unwritten last page is so much more clear. I recommend this book to everyone wanting to write or trying to take their career to the next level. Who knows, maybe this is the year I catch me an Agent.
My own writing background is more in the news category. I write factual stuff. One of my favorite kinds of writing is in the "human interest" category, i.e., people with unusual hobbies or pursuits. Again, it's all factual stuff.
Maybe that's why this author's no-nonsense and no frills style resonated with me so. It was like it was just him and me, eyeball-to-eyeball, with neither of us having to prove anything to the other.
I've done outlining for years and was surprised by Mr. Bernhardt's insistence on it in crafting a good fiction story. In fact, I learned more from the first chapter of this book than from years of reading fiction or about fiction writing. After reading the book through (and shaking my head in amazement!), I put the book down with the feeling that, I can do this!
Mr. Bernhardt, I just ordered the two books about plot and character development, as well. At age 71 and with all those years of news writing behind me, I need all the help I can get!
One more thing, I don't think I'll ever be able to read another novel without "peeking behind the curtain" to see how the author pulled it off!
