How to Make Your Novel Great

Written by son of rambow on Sunday, August 08, 2010

Donald Maass
"The Fire in Fiction: Passion, Purpose and Techniques to Make Your Novel Great"
Writers Digest Books
ISBN: 158297506X
272 pages

How do widely published authors keep their stories burning hot? Learn how to supercharge every story with deep conviction and, conversely, turn fiery passion into effective story. The Fire in the Fiction shows you not only how to write compelling stories filled with interesting settings and vivid characters, but how to do it over and over again. With examples drawn from current novels, this inspiring guide shows you how to infuse your writing with life.

This book has examples of techniques that Maass emphasizes. There's lots of advice to follow, too, which makes it practical. Would recommend.

This book has lots of new information about writing. Though I haven't, nor would read some of the books Maas chose, the example was easy to understand. An excellent resource book.

A must read for any serious fiction writer.
