Whether you're a commercial storyteller or a literary novelist, whether your goal is to write a best-selling novel or captivate readers with a satisfying, beautifully written story, the key to success is the same: high-impact fiction. Writing 21st Century Fiction will help you write a novel for today's readers and market, filled with rich characters, compelling plots, and resonant themes. Author and literary agent Donald Maass shows you how to:

  • Create fiction that transcends genre, conjures characters who look and feel more "real" than real people, and shows readers the work around them in new ways.
  • Infuse every page with an electric current of emotional appeal and micro-tension.
  • Harness the power of parallels, symbols, metaphors, and more to illuminate your novel in a lasting way.
  • Develop a personalized method of writing that works for you.

With an arsenal of thought-provoking prompts and questions, plus plenty of examples from best-selling titles, Writing 21st Century Fiction will strip away your preconceived notions about writing in today's world and give you the essential tools you need to create fiction that will leave both readers and critics in awe.

Wordy to say the least. Last few chapters are useful, first few are about author's ideas and will serve to detract from the writer's imagination on his own character and plot development. His earlier work "Breakout Novelist" is rumoured to be better.
