The Fire in Fiction

I'm on a Maass kick. I'm now reading The Fire in Fiction. The priciples reprise Writing a Breakout Novel and the Workbook -- this one also has "homework" at the end of each chapter -- but the examples he uses to illustrate the point are all new, so it's worth reading.

You can never read too many samples of something done right.

Hmmm...I've seen a lot of reviews of Maas lately...maybe I'll have to check him out!

I've never heard of this person. Who is he?

I've heard many good things about all those publications. I am looking to read them this summer.

Thanks for the follow! I look forward to getting to "know" you. :)

I agree, good stuff is just good to read! That sounds like a really good book. But I'm with Davin and not sure who Maas is. :D

I agree. Good samples are always helpful. I just started reading "Writing the Breakout Novel" last night. I need to get my hands on the workbook.

Very true!

Something I'll have to check out come the revision process (which is right around the corner!)

I'm reading that book, too. I think you guys are all raiding my bookshelves. Lol! :D
