Mehso-so

Down with narrative arc! Death to climax! Alison makes a case for non-standard narrative structures, praising patterns in nature: meander, spiral, explosion, radial, fractal, cell, tsunami. Some good examples (Sebald, García Márquez, Lispector), but tons of omissions (Calvino, Borges, Pavić, Vonnegut, Bolaño), few “stun gun” insights. Section on pacing, “narrative hydraulics,” Wolff‘s “Bullet in the Brain” strong. Narrative by accumulation. 2019

Just finished it and I enjoyed it a lot: a very cool view into the mind of a great writer about writing novels, publishing, readers, literary awards, and more. A pick.

This read also helped me get a #BookSpinBingo for this month.

@TheAromaOfBooks I was trying hard to find a book with a title starting with N for my #BookChain challenge, only when I finished it I realized this was it 😃

TheAromaofBooks Yay bingo!!!! I'm stuck in my BookChain because I finished a book over 400 pages and have to read a book that's even longer for my next link!! I have one in my February pile, but it's going to be a hot minute before I get to it lol 3d
claudiuo @TheAromaofBooks Oh, I have to watch for that one... I rarely read something over 400, if I do that just before this prompt, I'd be toasted... I was going to take the prompts one at a time, but it seems I need some planning 😃 3d

This book covers everything to do with novel writing.

It's ideal for beginners, such as myself because you get to learn the basics but also for more experienced writers looking to keep their skills sharp.

The chapters cover different aspects of novel writing and can be read in the order that interests the reader.

I've read a few similar books, this one is the best.

TheNeverendingTBR @Reggie I've been wanting to do it for years, procrastinating though! 🙃 Trying to get a better idea on it before starting. I've spoken to numerous authors who say I should just dive into it. I think I'll give it a try this year, I've a couple of ideas. 7d

This book of essays written by some of the most well respected and prolific romance authors was thoughtful, well researched, and made me@think about what I read and how it impacts my life. While definitely dated, published 1992, I appreciated the honest and smart perspectives shared. #BookspinBingo @TheAromaofBooks #Nonfiction #LikeAVirgin

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! 2w

Since I‘ve been in school, I‘ve been taking a hiatus from serious writing (I still journaled and wrote poetry now and then). Now that I‘m only a few weeks from graduation, I‘ll be jumping back in. I saw this available for preorder a couple of weeks ago and it just arrived. It came at the perfect time. After so much time off, I‘m definitely in need of some inspiration.

This short-but-sweet guide to poetry is written for the aspiring poet but enlightens readers, too. It refreshed my memories of AP Literature: scansion, metric patterns, imagery. It makes me want to read more poetry. #52Books #under200pages

ravenlee Also this was a #Roll100 pick, so I‘ve already read two for this month! @PuddleJumper 3w

AshleyHoss820 I have this! I once accidentally bought books for the right class, wrong section and this was one of them! 🫣😂 I may have to pick this back up! I‘m taking a 3-week course (my university calls it the J-term) on poetry. We‘re using How to Write a Poem by Tania Runyan and the tagged book. Poetry isn‘t my strong suit, so I‘m trying to get better at it. ☺️ This would probably be helpful! (edited) 3w
PuddleJumper You're doing great! 3w
