Limited Sight: Getting from One Sentence to the Next [Joan Leegant]
E. L. Doctorow said that writing a novel is like driving a car at night in the fog. You can see only as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way. How to get from one sentence to the next without a map? Answer: by staying close to the physical world of your emerging draft. Guided by excerpts from Ron Carlson Writes A Story (provided) and exercises, we’ll try multiple approaches to letting the narrative lead you through the story. Valuable for writers of fiction and creative nonfiction.
