The art of writing fiction successfully requires not only talent but craft. This book is a guide to that craft - for writers who want to understand and master the basics of what makes a novel or story work well. The principles and sound practical advice offered arise from Garry Disher's own deep experience as a professional writer, as well as a teacher of writing, an editor of collections, and a judge for fiction awards. Disher illustrates his points with examples from many other Australian and international fiction writers, presenting a candid picture of the pleasures and pitfalls across a diversity of fiction-writing experiences.Ranging across from the most significant elements of fiction, such as plot characterisation and voice, to fine details like the use of tense, Disher's hands-on advice can only help fiction writers write better fiction.
