Plotting and Writing Suspense Fiction

by Patricia Highsmith

This week, editorial’s Rhiannon is doing the recommending:

Plotting and Writing Suspense Fiction is not only a classic creative writing tool, it’s also a fascinating look into the mind and work of one of the greatest crime writers of all time.

First published in 1983, Highsmith’s writing on the art of the story doesn’t just apply to crime, but to all writing. Her warm, autobiographical observations of the writing process make the book a joy to read. From ‘the germ of an idea’ to dissecting her own novels, Plotting and Writing provides tools for writers and insight for readers into the practice of writing.
