Method and Madness The Making of a Story review ¾ 103 Seller Reading Like a Writer” Library Journal The Making of a Story is a fresh and inspiring guide to the basics of creative writing both fict. The one book I recommend to people about writing than anything Covering both fiction and narrative nonfiction the book deals with a topic per chapter from plot to dialogue to character Just like every other writing book But this book does a couple of things better than any other book I ve seen it has a less stringent focus on exercises and it includes full texts I don t like writing books that want to kick me out and send me off to do something and come back to it later I want a book to let me consume it sit with it for a while and then do exercises if I want to Frankly I m kind of down on exercises as it is since I don t like being told what to write when it comes to fictionAlso a big problem with writing books is the way they tell you how writer X does something right then presents a passage from the story in uestion pulled out of context from the rest of the story Which does the job but wouldn t it be better to have the full story in front of you If you re telling me what an amazing job Flannery O Connor does characterizing the Grandmother in A Good Man is Hard to Find is it better to give me a snapshot or the whole story I understand this is likely a copyright issue excerpts under a certain length being exempt from royalty payments But TMOAS opens the purse and pays for the reprint rights So if LaPlante is discussing how Cheever sprinkles details throughout The Swimmer you ll be able to see for yourself and read the story at the end of the chapter with a trio of review uestions to help you crystallize in your mind what the story excels at Simply the best book you can get on the technical aspects

    (PDF) Method and Madness The Making of a Story I bought this book because I was trying to write my own but I had come face to face with a particular realization I did not know what I was doing I was not capable of producing the kind of writing I desperately wanted to produce the kind of writing I wanted to read Now in all humility there may very well be readers who throw my book down in disgust and say he still doesn't know how; but at least I got the manu
