Write Great Fiction: Characters, Emotion & Viewpoint : Techniques and Exercises for Crafting Dynamic Characters and Effective Viewpoints (英语) 平装 – 2005年3月15日
Create Complex Characters
How do you create a main character readers won't forget? How do you write a book in multiple-third-person point of view without confusing your readers (or yourself)? How do you plant essential information about a character's past into a story?
Write Great Fiction: Characters, Emotion & Viewpoint by award-winning author Nancy Kress answers all of these questions and more! This accessible book is filled with interactive exercises and valuable advice that teaches you how to:
- Choose and execute the best point of view for your story
- Create three-dimensional and believable characters
- Develop your characters' emotions
- Create realistic love, fight, and death scenes
- Use frustration to motivate your characters and drive your story
With dozens of excerpts from some of today's most popular writers, Write Great Fiction: Characters, Emotion & Viewpoint provides you with the techniques you need to create characters and stories sure to linger in the hearts and minds of agents, editors, and readers long after they've finished your book.
This book above the rest opened my own personal style of writing, and method to an alternative option.
It's not all about characters say and do what.
It's about giving background story and living essence into a written character...
This book combined with the Author who writes "How to write a Damn Good...."???" series, really accompanied each other well.
Both taught me that it's a lot of prep-work, and most of what you write for yourself won't be published in what you hand over to a publisher for book read, but in doing all the pre- character design work, the essence in what stems from knowing your own story character in and out, will flow onto the pages. I've already tried the letter to (me the writer) method; background phobias and detailing out childhood reasons why later as an adult someone reacts in a situation the way they do....its great!
Purchase the book, you won't be disappointed.
