This book is designed so as to provide within one cover everything a novelist needs to begin a longer work of fiction. Its basic approach is both directive and prescriptive, but it is also flexible enough to account for all the possible modes and genres from children's fairy-tale to mainstream best-seller. It is the type of book that could be a self-help 'How-To' work for the individual writer, as well as a useful tool for the creative writing classroom.
