About the Book
The greatest storytellers make it look easy, as if stories arrive fully formed, and we writers need only type the tales into our word processing software.
Writing stories is rewarding, but it’s not easy. Think about all the elements that go into a good story: characters, plot, setting, theme, chapters, scenes, action, dialogue, exposition—not to mention point of view, tense, style, tone, and voice. That’s a lot to learn.
Learning (and mastering) the craft of storytelling requires study and practice. But it should also be fun.
Designed to be used by individual writers or in the classroom, Story Drills makes learning the craft of storytelling fun and interesting, often calling on you to use your favorite books, films, and television series as source material for studying the craft of storytelling. Whether you’re an aspiring or experienced storyteller, this book will bolster your ability to write compelling tales that leave readers wanting more.
