A wonderful, imaginative exploration of creative writing!
on 8 May 2017
After hearing many recommendations of this book, I recently caved in and treated myself (it didn't take much persuasion). The rave reviews proved to be very well deserved.
The book is loosely organised into sections, covering key aspects of creative writing, such as structure, characterisation and so forth. However, it's so much more than a 'how-to' guide; it actively seeks to fire up the imagination and force writers to question their techniques. The illustrations are a joy, and the interviews with famous authors are also highly thought-provoking.
If you're serious about writing (or even if you just love the act of writing as a hobby), this is a key book for your shelf!
