review Fiction Writer's Workshop

Master the Elements of the Writing WorkshopThe great paradox of the writing life is that to be a good writer you must be both interested in the world around you and comfortable working in solitude for hours on end Fiction Writer's Workshop Second Edition is designed to help you foster a strong sense of independence of being and thinking on your own of becoming self evaluative without being self critical in order to accomplish what others seek in classroom group If you re looking for a writing book where an author riffs on writing for a while looks elsewhere It reads casual than a textbook would but Fiction Writer s Workshop demands a lot of work out of the reader If you re not willing to go through it performing most of the exercises you re not going to get the most out of it Granted I ve yet to redo the whole book doing all the exercises but as far as I ve gotten I ve consistently found stories that I didn t know I had in me The author takes the approach of throwing as many techniues your way as possible and then asking you to experiment with them You ll embrace some and loathe others and in the process you ll find out about yourself as a writer and end up with a few pieces that you ll definitely want to work on some FWW probably has value if you re a beginner with the dedication to write everyday and learn the craft or an aspiring writer who s had trouble actually getting stories completed If you ve been published and are just looking for a source of new ideas this is probably a path you ve already been down before
