Recensione

‘…an easy–to–follow guide providing step–by–step instructions…’ (Writers Forum, December 2009).

Sinossi

A complete guide to writing and selling your novel

So you want to write a novel? Great! That’s a worthy goal, no matter what your reason. But don’t settle for just writing a novel. Aim high. Write a novel that you intend to sell to a publisher. Writing Fiction for Dummies is a complete guide designed to coach you every step along the path from beginning writer to royalty-earning author. Here are some things you’ll learn in Writing Fiction for Dummies:

  • Strategic Planning: Pinpoint where you are on the roadmap to publication; discover what every reader desperately wants from a story; home in on a marketable category; choose from among the four most common creative styles; and learn the self-management methods of professional writers.
  • Writing Powerful Fiction: Construct a story world that rings true; create believable, unpredictable characters; build a strong plot with all six layers of complexity of a modern novel; and infuse it all with a strong theme.
  • Self-Editing Your Novel: Psychoanalyze your characters to bring them fully to life; edit your story structure from the top down; fix broken scenes; and polish your action and dialogue.
  • Finding An Agent and Getting Published: Write a query letter, a synopsis, and a proposal; pitch your work to agents and editors without fear.

Writing Fiction For Dummies takes you from being a writer to being an author. It can happen—if you have the talent and persistence to do what you need to do.

Questo, secondo me, è il primo manuale di scrittura da possedere. C'è tutto, ma proprio tutto, quello che serve per cominciare. Poi si può trovare una strada più personale, un tema da approfondire con dei testi più specifici, ma il libro scritto dal creatore dello Snowflake Method, Randy Ingermanson, e da Peter Economy resta una pietra angolare che copre tutti gli aspetti della scrittura narrativa, dall'idea iniziale alla vendita. Sempre attuale. Lo consiglio a chiunque ami la scrittura e spero che prima o poi venga tradotto in italiano.

L'etichetta For Dummies non ha bisogno di presentazioni, perchè è probabilmente la serie di libri informativi più famosa al mondo. Gli argomenti trattati sono tantissimi, ma a noi interessa un libro in particolare: quello che ci spiega come migliorare il nostro testo di fiction. Dopo averlo letto (e se vi sarà piaciuto), potrete pensare di acquistare anche altri libri della stessa serie, per aiutarvi nel difficile processo di creazione di una novel. Psicologia, geografia, astronomia e via dicendo vi saranno molto utili nei processi di world building e creazione dei personaggi. Tenetelo a mente. Approfondire questi argomenti secondari non è fondamentale per uno scrittore, ma aiuta ad aumentare la propria cultura e dunque migliorare il risultato finale del romanzo.
Questo testo spiega ai novizi scrittori le parti che compongono un libro e come migliorarle. Ci dice i più comuni metodi di scrittura (o paradigmi). Ne vengono menzionati 4, ovvero i più usati. Sei uno scrittore che vuole pianificare ogni dettaglio della novella prima di iniziarla, oppure penserai a far quadrare tutte le caratteristiche a lavoro ultimato?
Il linguaggio usato è semplice, ma piuttosto “scolastico”. In alcune parti gli autori cercano di farci sorridere con aneddoti e trovate piuttosto penose. Poco male, questo non è un libro che ci deve far ridere: il suo obbiettivo è di farci capire i vari livelli su cui è costruita una novel. Tramite la comprensione riusciremo ad adattarli per arrivare ad una soluzione finale che consideriamo accettabile.
Un romanzo di fiction è come un puzzle: tutti i pezzi si devono incastrare alla perfezione per poter raggiungere un risultato finale soddisfacente.

Review by Jill Williamson

Randy Ingermanson is my hero. I have been learning from him since I discovered his website in 2005. The man is not only a wealth of information, he teaches in such a fun and friendly way, you can't fail to learn. And now, everything Randy teaches is here in one convenient package. Man, how I wish he had written this a few years ago! It would have saved me a lot of trouble.

I highly recommend this book to any writer, but especially to beginners who want to write a novel. You'll learn how to come up with a plot and test it to see if it's strong, how to create amazing characters that are deep and engaging, how to plot your story and avoid the dreaded sagging middle, how to keep the tension and pacing strong, and how to edit your novel. This book even includes cool things like an interview between J.R.R. Tolkien and Frodo Baggins. Ahh, Randy. What a funny guy.

5.0 su 5 stelle Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Fiction (But Were Afraid to Ask) 20 luglio 2011
Di Remix - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I've procrastinated about writing a review of this book since shortly after it came out because I have a lot to say, and I'm not entirely sure I'll be able to express it all. So I figure I'll force myself to just do it and get it over with.

Who is this book for?

A. Someone who wants to know exactly how to write fiction from start to finish.
B. Someone who has ideas about how to write fiction, and wants them confirmed.
C. Someone who knows exactly how to write fiction, but has a few weak spots that they can't quite put their finger on.
D. Someone who can't decide which fiction book to buy and can't afford to buy every single one.

This is the last book you will ever need to buy on the craft of fiction. If you're on a shoestring budget, or if you're sick and tired of wading through theory and want to finally get down to writing, this is exactly what you need.

This book covers everything from A to Z, no topic uncovered. It is simple, direct and to the point and doesn't waste time. The advice within the book can be used by writers of all different styles from Seat of the Pants writers to dedicated Outliners; the book even helps individuals figure out which one they are.

Character development, story world creation, how to write a compelling scene, how to write a book that will keep readers turning the page all night long no matter the genre, how to define your niche, genre and target reader; it's all here.

This is the one reference every fiction writer should have.

I used this book to write my debut novel. I read it from start to finish and did all the steps it mentioned. It helped me to flesh the characters and story arc. I'm proud to say my book is now published and it wouldn't have been possible without this book. Its magic is in the simplicity. Thanks! :)

Di C. Fouts - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I have read a stack of writing and storytelling books a mile high, and this one is a standout.

Truby does an excellent job delving into the nuances of story, Vogler's 'The Writer's Journey is also a great help, and Larry Brooks' book, Story Engineering, explains story structure clearly and is indispensable imo, but this book lays it out plain how to write marketable fiction.

The only downside to this book is that, like many 'Dummies' books, it's not really for a complete dummy. I have helped out new writers with this book, and some of the subtleties go over their heads. It is most useful in the hands of someone who already has a rudimentary understanding of the concepts he explains. Being a Dummies book, he hits all the steps and 'how-tos' but doesn't dive too deeply explaining them. This is not a criticism. That is what I expect when I pick up a Dummies book.

If you are an experienced writer or someone who has learned all the basics but need to brush up, (you know what POV is, you understand the difference between a scene and a sequence) or if you want to have a quick reference in one book at your fingertips, this is it.

I don't want to scare away those just learning. Buy this book! Even the brand new writer can benefit greatly from it, since it gathers many concepts in one package that I had to learn by reading many books.

What I do suggest for the newer writer, is to buy the following companion books:

Techniques of the Selling Writer, Dwight Swain
Self-Editing for Fiction Wrighters, Renni Brown

I say this because Ingermanson bases his books on the teachings of Swain and Brown, or at least what he says accords with what they teach, Swain especially. Writing Fiction for Dummies is a wonderful, fairly-detailed outline on how to puke out a novel and form it into something others will want to read, but as I said, he will state a step and move on without bogging you down in theory, which is what I like about this book.

Swain's book could be thought of as the deep reference for this Dummies book. If you want to delve deeper into what Ingermanson is teaching you, Swain's book will fit the bill perfectly, which is why I recommend it as a companion.

Writing Fiction for Dummies is all about helping you get your words down on the page and organizing them in a way that will make them marketable. I wish I had picked this book up first.

I'm a total amateur who has been writing creatively since I was a young person, and have always aspired to some day complete a novel. I used to be a fly by the seat of my pants type of writer with a binder full of unfinished ideas. Tired of this approach, I was looking for a book that would help me formulate an organized, well-structured writing process. This book delivers. There are so many good writing tools and tips in this book that it feels like having a personal mentor sitting next to my computer. I especially liked the idea of a three-act structure with a three crisis overlay. This really helped me think about the big picture and develop a formula for my novel. There are also a lot of character development questions to ask yourself, and your characters, even an opportunity to interview your characters one-by-one until they squirm and give up all of their secrets. There are tips for structuring your time and organizing your work space as well. Just and all-around great resource. It even goes so far as to give you practical advice for pitching your book and getting it published.

The book is also very entertaining and extremely accessible. There are plenty of examples from classic fiction to help you understand the concepts that are being addressed. I feel like I am learning a lot and improving daily, thanks to this book.
