      Wrede on Writing is a book on writing by Patricia C. Wrede.This was a Netgalley find.Normally, I look upon books about writing by writers I've never heard of in the same light as telephone psychics offering me the winning lottery numbers. If the writer in question is so good, why aren't they too busy cranking out best sellers to write a book about writing? From the opening page, Wrede had me hooked.Maybe it was the relaxed tone. Maybe it was her clear grasp of what it takes to go into a novel. O [...]

      Wrede on Writing: Tips, Hints, and Opinions on Writing .Patricia C. Wrede Review from Jeannie Zelos Book Reviews. Like many many people I've always had a desire to write – many years ago I even started one of those online writing classesbut to be honest even I was bored reading what I’d written, so the rejection slips were no surprise. Looking back though I can see one huge mistake – I’d followed the course instructions to write short stories and articles, but I never read those, I love [...]

      Patricia C. Wrede on all sorts of writing topics.What the presence of a codfish dinner far inland means for your world-building. How the big issue with not caring about your grammar is not that it will mean automatic rejection (though it will), but that you have thrown away the chance to use run-ons or sentence fragments in a handful of places where they will have dramatic impact, because you are scattering them everywhere. How the grammar that you learned in school was good as far as it went, b [...]

      Patricia C. Wrede - Wrede on Writing - Tips, Hints, and Opinions on WritingAnyone who has read Wrede’s books knows she can write. (See the bibliography of her novels at the end of this article, and it does not include her many short stories.) She does it all – beautiful prose, exciting plots, humorous touches, characters with depth and feelings. And those are all good things; but can she write about writing? The answer is a resounding “YES!”I’ve been following her blog for a while now [...]

      I received the book for free through First Reads.I was a little worried about Wrede on Writing: Tips, Hints, and Opinions on Writing after reading the first sentence: "What writers need to know before they start writing:" with a list of items and parenthetical questions. It just seemed like a formulaic approach to writing with the idea of a template for every story. But Patricia Wrede actually provides the gamut of writing elements that go into crafting a good story in short, digestible topics. [...]

      Review originally published at The Bookwyrm's Hoard.Patricia Wrede's new book on writing offers practical, commonsense advice for fiction writers, all of it with the underlying mantra, "there is no One True Way." There are very few hard-and-fast rules here, but lots of sage advice, plenty of humor and delightful examples, a few friendly warnings, and several dollops of reassurance -- much of it taken from her blog. Wrede tackles the nuts and bolts of writing fiction, from the need for good gramm [...]

    • Rose says:

      Invaluable resource on writing from Patricia C. Wrede. She approaches writing in a very practical, reflective progression that I'll admit inspired me as I read through the narrative. She doesn't give you exercises to do (not being a fan of the method personally), but rather she gives short talking points per section on things that are pertinent to the writing life. It flows very well, is easy to understand and follow while being encouraging to the writer perusing the work.The book is organized i [...]

      As a teacher of writing, I can't help from reading the occasional book about the craft. Patricia C. Wrede wastes no time in getting right to the point with this book of tips and hints about getting published. She gives specific information about how long it realistically takes to have a manuscript published (roughly 1-3 years), what to look for in an agent (common ground and ethics), how to approach deadlines, how to make and manage a living as an author, among many other tips. There were some i [...]

    • Heather says:

      I love Wrede's novels and her short stories (and I'm normally not a huge fan of short stories). Her book on writing is fun and easy to read. She gives good advice on a range of topics. Is it the only writing book you'll ever need? No. And it's certainly not a step by step how-to. But she takes the (often conflicting) writing advice of other books and puts it into perspective so you know what kinds of options you should consider, but not to feel guilty about not taking advice that doesn't work fo [...]

    • Eileen Troemel says:

      Wrede provides a realistic look at book writing. She talks about what it takes and how much work it is. If you like her novels, you will like the humor and conversational tone of this book. It offers a good place for the beginner and even the more advanced writer to get some great tips about the publishing industry. The one area she doesn't speak at length about is self-publishing. While she mentions it, she doesn't go into detail. This is probably because she hasn't been through that experience [...]

    • Adeselna says:

      Full review:illusionarypleasure.wordpress.Wrede on Writing is an excellent book for authors who are about to go on an adventure towards the world of writing. Wrede’s writing style is easy to follow and to take notes. This books pretty much clears the major aspects on writing. The only negative aspect I found was the lack of questions to actually guide the author. I tend to plot and create better if I am asked questions. Even if Wrede guidelines were clear and easy to follow, some questions for [...]

      Written as though by someone you already know, easy enough to read without feeling like you're being told " Do it this way or you're doing it all wrong!"Still, it felt like I was reading a well compiled series of blog posts. I'm sure there will be an aspiring author who might get something important from this.A free copy was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest unbiased review. Read more reviews, author interviews and enter giveaways on my blog.

    • Artur says:

      This is not the kind of writing books that I like best (those would be the ones that put less emphasis on advice, more on leaving you inspired, like Bradbury’s “Zen in the Art of Writing”) – so I’m putting it down for now, even though all the advice is pretty good and I’m sure I’ll be dipping in and out and read it in full one day.

    • Prasanna says:

      The book is an excellent resource for writers stepping into writing their first novel or short stories. Other than some basic questions like about getting ideas, the book also talks about more technical issues relating to developing a story and the differences between approach to a short story and a novel.

    • Lila says:

      Good, but more for writing *just* beginning on their journey. Did seem like a lot of copy/paste from her blog and one section in particular where there was no spelling/grammar checking before publication.

      Disclaimer: This ARC was given to me for free in exchange for an honest review from Netgalley.I really found this book both enlightening and helpful. She recommends what has worked for her, regardless if it goes against traditional advice.

    • Elizabeth says:

      Clear, straightforward, thorough, and helpful. Wrede knows what she is talking about from her experience as a writer as well as from being a fervent researcher and big time reader. No cutesy bits here.

    • Linda says:

      love The Enchanted Forest Chronicles and love her blog, so i really liked her book of writing advice as well!

    • Meredith says:

      Brief sections on all sorts of writing/story/character/setting/etc related topics, similar to other writing books I've read.My favorite part was the last third, on the business side. None of the writing books I've read say anything about this.

    • Karie says:

      To me, this reads like a textbook, which is why it took me so long to finish! But it's light-hearted as well as down to earth, and will make a great reference come time NaNoWriMo time.

    • Sophia says:

      Very useful - no-nonsense, no 'fairy-dust' advice for writers, from a writer of fantasy.

    • Eric Jackson says:

      I am encouraged. Off I go. Thanks Patricia!

    • Frances says:

      This was a very informative read. I enjoyed Wrede's conversational style of dealing out advice
