    "How to write fiction better!"

    When you don't understand the basics of writing fiction, it can be really difficult to write a short story, much less a novel. This book is a great help in sorting through the basics, giving you a plan on how to go about writing really good fiction stories. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to write good fiction. It's an awesome manual to have with easy access to 100 great strategies for writers of any caliber or experience.

    "Practical, Useful Advice for Writing Fiction"

    As an aspiring author myself, I always love finding new authors and ways of approaching writing fiction. Blaine Hart's book is a great resource for new and experienced authors seeking guidance on the sometimes-daunting journey to creating a work of fiction. Not only does he cover basic mechanics such as how to outline, create memorable characters, and structure the novel, but he also includes tips on getting into your creative flow state in order to maximize your creativity. All in all, this book is an excellent resource for writers of all ages and in all stages of their career.

    ""Writing Fiction" Has Given Me Courage to Write"
    Would you listen to Writing Fiction: The Top 100 Best Strategies for Writing Fiction Stories again? Why?

    I would definitely listen to "Writing Fiction: The Top 100 Best Strategies for Writing Fiction Stories" again. I have been wanting to write a short story, and I have had the idea in my head for the longest time. I honestly have no idea where to begin, nor how to write the story. Well, while I listen to the audio books, I take as many notes as possible. I know that as I listen, and take notes, I am possibly missing something. so I will start the audio over again.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    "Writing Fiction" is a self-help/self-improvement book, so there are no characters. However, if there were I would have to two. One would be Blaine Hart for writing the book, and Joshua Mackey for narrating it.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There are no scenes in this book, but what I chose is what I liked best about the book. "In this book you will discover everything you need to do in order to write a successful, exciting, and well-structured fiction story. You'll discover the things that you can do before you actually start writing, how to get into the creative flow state, how to structure and design your book, and things you can do once you've reached the end of the story. Plot, characters, dialogue, techniques, and strategy." These are the parts of the book that I need to learn more about, and thanks to Blaine Hart, I understand a lot better.

    "Great tactics for writing fiction"
    If you could sum up Writing Fiction: The Top 100 Best Strategies for Writing Fiction Stories in three words, what would they be?

    Professional, creative, useful


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Writing Fiction: The Top 100 Best Strategies for Writing Fiction Stories?

    “Writing fiction” greatest advice linked with character setting. When you set character you have to remember that he or she can’t be the same figure at the beginning to the end. He must change, be dynamic and must looks naturally to readers. Set a protagonist, who can’t be perfect, easier to reader to follow. How is look like, how is his experience, childhood, relationships and goals. Which factors make him change and what he achieves after transformation. Your protagonist need own personality, even if he is antihero and has bad habits, making wrong decision and has rally dark personality, still must be interesting. Try to set certain voice and vocabulary for your character depends who he is, where he is working and what are his social background.


    Have you listened to any of Joshua Mackey’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    I listened Joshua Mackey in others e-books written by Ace McCloud ("Spirituality") and Blaine Hart ("Writing Fantasy"). This time his performance is excellent, his voice tone helps you listening actively, writing notes and just relax.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    “Writing fiction” by Blaine Hart contains the useful tip to self-assess yourself as a writer. Are you just beginner, advance or expert? What is your audience? How good are your organizational skills, your contact with publishers? Can you attract your audience and make them feel moved by your style? Do they have emotional reactions for your story? If yes, you definitely a good writer. If you fell that you need to improve your skills “Writing fiction” definitely helps you with organize your tools, time and money and be a successful writer.


    Any additional comments?

    Hart presents useful technique that exposes tension is “show not tell”. Try to make your dialogue vivid, nervous, full of opposite emotions like fear, love or admiration. Show how characters behave, what the scenery looks like, how his feeling and emotions are presented. Concentrate what are main symptoms of emotions, instead of calling emotions straightforward. That really helpful exercises and have a good result.
