Review from OnlineBookClub.org
The fact that William H. Coles provided only relevant information regarding what he spoke about per time was what I liked the most in the book. It was not verbose. This made me agree that it is a guide indeed and not a textbook. I equally appreciated the fact that he tried not to impose any particular writing style on writers, rather he encouraged writers to develop theirs. He also showed variations to the use of a literary element using short one-paragraph stories. This aided my understanding of how the use of an element in a particular way or another can affect a scene.
It seemed professionally edited as I found no error in it despite trying hard to. For this, I give a well-deserved 4 out of 4 stars rating. Creating Literary Stories: A Fiction Writer’s Guide by William H. Coles is highly recommended to all literary fiction writers and prospective writers. It is also a sure guide for anyone who seeks to sharpen their writing skills in general.
