From The Stuff of Fiction



F
rom one of the best books authored by the novelist, sailor and teacher, Gerald Warner Brace, i.e., "The Stuff of Fiction", I am rescuing the following excerpt:


"It is not enough for a writer to tell about a person or a place, he/she must give us the illusion of being the person ourselves... the basic failure of much writing is the failure of the writer's imagination... he/she is not trying hard enough to live from moment to moment in the very skin of their characters"

It is important to keep this message in our mind when we are about to write our novels...
