It's an older book (1965), so you know this stuff has stood the test of time. The author is a really insightful man, and like few other books, he really loves humanity.
That said, this book was first copyrighted in 1965 and does reflect an older way of both speaking and thinking. I was able to get beyond that and have come to find this book invaluable.
It synthesis every information you need to write a fiction. Most of the content what you will generally found reading 2 or 3 different books or in several blog articles is resumed here.
The author explains clearly all the critical aspect of a story.
In addition to this book I will only suggest the reading of "Self-Editing for Fiction Writers: How to Edit Yourself into Print".
I was originally turned onto this book by a man named John D Brown who is a writer. I've been researching his website and found that it is very educational in the process of informing someone how to write. But I was still hungry for more.
On his website he had personal recommendations for books and so I decided to give a few of them a try. This was the very first book that I downloaded straight to my Kindle. Immediately I began reading it and immediately I couldn't put it down.
I have been working on my writing for a long time now and have made a goal to become a self published writer. But for all the writing that I've done, I've hated it. This book has cleared everything up for me.
This book gives you insight on so many things that you normally don't think about. It gives you ways to understand character and structure more than you could have ever thought possible. It is a very good read. I would recommend it to anyone who has decided to write anything. Just read it, then read it again, and even give it a third read. You will be amazed at how much better your books start to generate and how much better you start to think about your work. I truly feels like a breathe of fresh air.
