Description: This comprehensive introduction to creative writing combines theory, practical advice, and examples in each chapter and not only explores elements of effective writing applicable to all genres, but also considers the creative writing enterprise and the necessary Owriterly attitude.O Emphasizing basic conventions and terms, this valuable book begins by taking an extensive look at issues of importance to every creative writer, including attitudes, habits, journal-keeping, point of view, language, invention and research, and more. Each major genre is covered in several chapters that include numerous examples of effective writing of each type. The book also illustrates faulty practices with accompanying explanations and suggestions, e.g., diction problems, poetry problems, narration problems, and dialogue problems. It also features questions and exercises which may spark results worth developing into poems, stories, or plays. Finally, it considers how word processing may affect the writing process and provides necessary tools, including manuscript form, resource texts, markets, and terms. The third edition of" Creative Writer's Handbook" has been revised to include a new chapter on non-fiction narration; an expanded section on writing for screen and television; a revised chapter on the pleasures of creative writing; new sections on free verse in the poetry section; and an updated section on Tools and Resources. An essential resource for anyone who writes, whether professionally or solely for the pleasure of it.
