Dear Writer

(1988)
A non fiction book by

 
Many people wanting to write do not know where to begin; how to explore that subterranean cave which is the imagination; or with which tools to discover its contours and its depths. This book is a collection of letters to an aspiring author. It speaks about the nature of fiction - the role of the imagination, the techniques of plot and point of view, the importance of beginnings and endings, the traps of language tired by over-use, and how to overcome writer's block. The author takes the new writer on an inspiring journey to find the source material of fiction which is the life, the experience, the memory and the self of the writer.
