With its lively, distinctive approach, this is a unique one-stop guide to the basics of creative writing. Meet Plot, who keeps a story running and its events moving in the right order; Atmosphere, who can fill a scene with suspense; a cast of Heroes and Villains including Protagonist and Narrator; and chatty, talkative Dialogue. Plus tonnes of detail on the building blocks of narrative and what makes creative writing work.
These succinct chapters are ideal for focussing on key points and provide an excellent basis for story writing.
