recommended review: Erika Dreifus on How Fiction Works by James Wood
One of my favorite blogs is Erika Dreifus’ Practicing Writing, an offshoot of her larger site The Practicing Writer, originally referred to me by Celeste. One day I’ll have to devote a long entry to the awesomeness of the many rich resources and services Erika provides to writers–most free of charge–but for now I’ll just link you to her astute review of James Wood’s How Fiction Works, a book that I’ve been both savoring and smacking against things this fall.
How Fiction Works will be FWR’s next Discussion Review. If you’d like to join the conversation — I’m getting in on the action this time! — email me at firstname.lastname@example.org .
