Summary: Is the story or novel you've been carrying around in your head the same one you see on the page? Or does the dialogue suddenly sound flat and predictable? The events seem to ramble?

Translating a flash of inspiration into a compelling story requires careful crafting. The words you choose, how you describe the characters, and the way you orchestrate conflict all make the difference--the difference between a story that is slow to begin, flounders midway or tr
ails off at the end--and the one that holds the interest of readers and editors to the final page.

Nancy Kress addresses each stage of narrative, helping writers:
  • hook readers in the first three paragraphs
  • build drama and credibility by controling prose
  • and practice careful revision skills to create a powerful and dramatic conclusion.
Dozens of writing exercises keep writers focused and strengthen essential writing techniques.

Let this working resource be your guide to successful stories--from beginning to end.
