Storytelling is a gift, but the craft of writing creative fiction can be learned. It’s a matter of knowing the tools and how to use them. In Story & Style, all the basics of the craft are discussed in a friendly, conversational manner and layman’s terms. Indexed for easy reference with wide outside margins for personal notes, this handy book is a virtual toolbox for writers, filled with a smorgasbord of writing elements like hook, point of view, dialogue, characterization, active vs. passive, and more!
Can you hook an agent or editor or reader? Do you head-hop or stay in point of view? What about those character arcs? Is your dialogue smooth and natural, or grammatically perfect, but stilted? Why aren’t you packing in those five-star reviews—when you can get one?
Whether you’ve written and published multiple novels or just starting your first one, Story & Style serves to improve your craft.
This good basic primer for the novice writer covers most topics. This fledgling writer found helpful content inside the covers of this book. A quick read, it will never the less satisfy the need for information about writing.
