Product Description
This revised edition of a popular creative writing book. edited by Sasha Newborn, highlights the first-person approach in many forms: letter, travel diary, confession, sketch, war memories. Writing in the first person cuts away the "narrator" function of filling in the scene and the background and what each character is thinking. First person is direct, and, ideally, honest, sometimes to the point of being embarrassing. By setting such accounts alongside "fiction," one can easily see the "craft" of fiction, so that there is an arc to a story, a satisfying conclusion, good pacing, etc. First person writing shies away from "craft," toward a connection with the reader that is hard to match.
