Product description

Synopsis

Writing is practice. Writing is instinct. Practice makes for better instincts. Fiction exercises are one part of a very particular sort of practice to build better instincts.Building on the success of Kiteley's previous book, "The 3A.M. Ephiphany", this book goes beyond the basic fiction writing elements such as dialogue and character to provide unusual exercises that allow writers to practice their craft in creative new ways.Unlike other writing books that can seem formulaic and predictable, this guide doesn't provide neat definitions of the component of fiction, nor does it hammer on particular rules or methods. Rather, it helps writers learn the elements of fiction while experiencing them.

About the Author

Brian Kiteley is director of the creative writing program at the University of Denver (one of the very few schools to offer a PhD in creative writing); he teaches writing workshops to both undergrads and grads. He has published two novels. His work has been published in Best American Short Stories.
