Storyville! : an illustrated guide to writing fiction

Image of item
Book

First edition.

"A smart and funny guide to writing fiction, with engaging infographics that bring storytelling techniques to life. Whether you are daunted by a blinking cursor or frustrated trying to get the people in your head onto the page, writing stories can be intimidating. It takes passion, tenacity, patience, and a knowledge of and faith in the often-digressive writing process. A do-it-yourself manual for the apprentice fiction writer, Storyville! demystifies that process; its bold graphics take you inside the writer's comfortingly chaotic mind and show you how stories are made. In Storyville!, seasoned guide John Dufresne-whose approach "will anchor the newbie and entertain the veteran" (San Francisco Chronicle)-provides practical insight into the building blocks of fiction, including how to make the reader see your characters, create a suspenseful plot, and revise, revise, revise. Storyville! is a combination handbook and notebook, with original prompts and exercises crafted with Dufresne's singular dry wit andEvan Wondolowski's playful and illuminating graphics on every page"--
