  • Writing Fiction Step by Step
    By Josip Novakovich.
    This clearly written book truly is a step by step approach to hone your writing skills. What this book also does, is actually help you ‘build’ well textured short stories (or even a novel) by combining some of the exercises to develop a whole. You learn by doing, which is the only way in writing, but you are being guided by Novakovich’s capable instructions.
