Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0944435106, Hardcover)

Capturing the Magic of Fiction Writing introduces the reader to a careful examination of prose fiction, its genres and categories. Classifications of novels including plotting, setting, characterization, and patterns are defined and explained. Creed analyzes supportive elements and techniques including style, development of flashbacks, dialogues, and much more. Symbols, symbolic plants, and symbolic references, skimmed over or ignored in most books, are introduced, discussed, and defined with original passages and excerpts drawn from published sources. Relationships, descriptions, and dialogue are all generously discussed in addition to characterizations, atmosphere, conflict, theme, plotting, and supporting elements. Capturing the Magic was developed to provide a practical guide for aspiring writers and teachers to ease the transition from analyzing the basic story to discovering and applying the essential tools of the writer's craft.
