Abstract:

Stories have been a part of our lives since birth. Many parents were reading and recounting stories and tales to us before we could talk. This instructive volume explains what constitutes a work of fiction as well as why it's written in the first place, and highlights important terminology, such as conflict. Key examples feature famous fiction authors and their work, comparing and contrasting their styles, and highlighting some of the prominent features in fiction that literature has to offer. Aspiring writers can start penning their own stories with simple, easy-to-follow, step-by-step writin.
