In this book of highly practical advice and informative exercises, using quotes from diaries, interviews and autobiographies, the masters of contemporary and classic fiction are gathered together to impart lessons from their own careers: Charles Dickens drops in to help you create exciting characters; Ernest Hemingway helps you figure out how to write concisely and powerfully; and Jane Austen shows you show to make the reader warm to an unsympathetic character. Using a combination of tried-and-tested advice and ingenious applications, Your Creative Writing Masterclass helps the budding writer to finesse her talent, flesh out characters, write to her market, and—most importantly—overcome psychological obstructions and put pen to paper. More than just a ‘how-to’ book, Your Creative Writing Masterclass is a friendly companion and coach which will provide the advice needed to become a full-time writer.
