We’re once again at Except Thursday. I just decided that today I would excerpt again from Donald Maass’ The Fire In Fiction, the book I’m currently reading. Why? I’m inspired by Maass’ book. Reading it makes me want to work on my novel. I hope it can inspire you too to work on your novel.
“I believe that passion is available to every author, every time she sits down to write. Every novel can be inspired. Every scene can have a white-hot center. It is not a matter of conjuring demons, being obsessed, or just plain luck. The passion that inspires great fiction can be a writing technique as handy and easy to use as those with which all fiction writers are familiar.”
