平均5.0 星 Improving Your Chances 2013年6月12日
评论者 Ralph White - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
版本: 平装 已确认购买
Your first highly selective handful of query letters to literary agents resulted in a few boilerplate turndowns. Most agents didn't even respond. Your second tier choices produced more turndowns and more non-responses. Your third barrage of tree saving groveling hit everyone on the AAR membership list. This produced four or five requests for partial manuscripts from entry level staffers. The responses went roughly as follows: your characters are not believable; your characters have no feelings; your characters have no emotions; their actions are inconsistent with their characters; they are not empathetic; the reader simply doesn't care. You, dear writer, are ready for Nancy Kress's "Write Great Fiction - Characters, Emotion, & Viewpoint," published by Writer's Digest Books.

You will learn, perhaps for the first time (as this reviewer did) how compelling fiction gets so compelling. The epiphany: the reader experiences the world through someone else's mind. It is fiction, and only fiction, which creates this illusion. These other-mind experiences are the soul of the writer's craft, yet they are the most neglected by novice writers. Ms. Kress will show you how to develop a strong sense of your characters' pasts. She will convince you that it is your character's story, not yours. You will learn the importance of frustration to character and to plot, and that the main expression of frustration is action. You will learn how to create characters who change and those who don't, and how to "validate" characters' permanent changes. You will learn how character change must come only in response to scenes you've crafted into the story. You will learn to start with mini bios for your characters to serve as templates. Eventually the mechanics will become second nature.

Master the lessons; do the chapter-end exercises, create mini bios, and put yourself into the character's head. Then edit better characters into your manuscript and try again with the literary agents. Your chances will have improved.

平均5.0 星 Good Coverage of Character Development 2013年5月17日
评论者 Ron - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
版本: Kindle电子书 已确认购买
I am new to writing, although I have wanted to write a book for many years... Just not the time or motivation to do much beyond getting started. I always bogged down on dialog and character development. I did the National Write A Novel in A Month (NaNoWriMo) last fall and surprised myself in actually finishing the 50,000 word effort. ... Then I started the editing process on the first draft and found that - not to my surprise - it needed a lot of work to take it from (very) rough to something like a good second draft.

That is where this book on character development comes in. I bought it to help me find my way through quite a bit of needs that an edit of my rough draft uncovered.

Nancy Kress's book on character development was helpful. And IS helpful, because there are more drafts to do after I finish this first edit! I recommend this book (the one being reviewed, not mine, ha! ... At least not YET).

The book by Nancy Kress is part of a series on writing, and I can recommend them all. Good perspectives for the developing writers out there! Check them out! If you are browsing the Amazon site, you will see the others in the series recommended somewhere in the Amazon write up on the book

平均5.0 星 4 In the series- Helps Any Writer a lot 2013年7月11日
评论者 Darla - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
版本: 平装 已确认购买
I'm a fan of the series set.
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.
