Need to Know : Writing Fiction
This is a great little book released by Collins and written by Alan Wall. It is full of helpful advice for any wannabe writer, old or new. It is split into various sections including plotting, characterization and setting and is pretty much a must read.
It also includes lots of neat writing exercises and is very much a creative writing course within a book. What I also loved was the way it uses lots of published novels as examples when going through each section rather than just talking about the elements of fiction writing.
I have learned so much from this book and hopefully it will improve my writing and I plan to read more of this kind of thing in the next few months.
Very helpful 5/5
