WRITING FICTION IS A CRAFT AND A CRAFT CAN BE LEARNED
First, what this book is not. It's not a series of lessons after which you'll know how to write fiction. There are other books for that. Lots of them.
Though, to be honest, Number 3 is a short story template and that's as good as any how-to book I've ever read for plotting fiction and a lot simpler.
Now that I've got that out of the way, let me tell you what this book is. It's a series of tips on the craft of writing fiction that I've collected over thirty plus years as a professional writer. Some of them I learned for myself through doing something wrong and figuring out how to do it right the next time. Others I learned from workshops, articles, and speeches by really good writers who are famous, infamous and unknown. I've deliberately not named any of those famous writers though if you know your way around the writing world you might figure out where some of the ideas originated.
