I’m reading STORY:Substance, Structure, Style, and the Principles of Screenwriting by Robert McKee right now, and I have to say I’m enthralled. Sure, it’s focus is on Screenplay, but just about everything he says can apply to fiction writing. It’s all about story, hence the name.
“The writer works at his skills until knowledge shifts from the left side of the brain to the right, until the intellectual awareness becomes living craft.” pg. 65
