Book Review: On Writing Wonderfully – The Craft of Creative Fiction Writing
Author: Pawan Mishra
Publisher: Luna Spark Books
Publication Date: December 31st, 2017
Genre: Writing, Creative Writing
On Writing Wonderfully, is a short, yet powerful and informative book, that highlights important truths about writing creative fiction. I love the structure of the book, each tip headlined with a summarizing statement, that made it easy to jot down notes, and internalize the truths that the Author was trying to convey.
I love that it started with highlighting the importance of being a reader, when wanting to be a writer, something that even Stephen King has mentioned multiple times, but yet some writers seem to forget.
Another point she made, that truly spoke to me, was the suggestion to look for ideas that have deep roots in your heart. This is so important, and gives life to a story, because the connection a writer feels with the subject matter, transfers itself onto the page, and makes stories take flight – rather than producing flat plots, without any depth.
