About Writing free pdf Essential reading for the creative writer. Award-winning novelist Samuel R. Delany has written a book for creative writers to place alongside E. M. Forster's "Aspects of the Novel" and Lajos Egri's "Art of Dramatic Writing". Taking up specifics (When do flashbacks work, and when should you avoid them? How do you make characters both vivid and sympathetic?) and generalities (How are novels structured? How do writers establish serious literary reputations today?), Delany also examines the condition of the contemporary creative writer and how it differs from that of the writer in the years of Hemingway, Fitzgerald, and the high Modernists. Like a private writing tutorial, "About Writing" treats each topic with clarity and insight. Here is an indispensable companion for serious writers everywhere.
