“True originality consists not in a new manner, but in a new vision.” Grab a pen and hone your writing skills under the guidance one of the greatest teachers of the craft. Edith Wharton made her claim in the literary world as the first woman to win the Pulitzer Prize in Literature. She is famous for her works of fiction, which include The Age of Innocence, The House of Mirth, and Ethan Frome. Breaking from this tradition, The Writing of Fiction sets itself apart as a distinctive work of nonfiction, in which Wharton pulls back the curtain to reveal the theories behind a great story. The Writing of Fiction delves into the timeless questions of all aspiring writers: 1. How do I find inspiration?2. How do I turn thoughts and ideas into words?3. How do I make my characters seem real?4. How do I write something original when so much has already been written?5. How do I tell a compelling story?Wharton offers advice specific to writing short stories and writing novels. She pulls insights from other great writers along the way and concludes with an in-depth analysis of French novelist Marcel Proust. The Writing of Fiction is a chance to mingle with renowned writers and find your own voice. Consider it Wharton’s personal invitation to discover your own potential and jump-start your creative process.
