Making Stories

Sue Woolfe


Publisher: Allen & Unwin

Format: Paperback

Good writers make writing look easy - but is it? Anyone learning to write should be encouraged by “Making Stories” - it shows that even great novelists come to their books by a long and uncertain process. The book shows ten acclaimed Australian authors at work, painstakingly constructing their books from rough notes, dimly-glimpsed ideas, and trial and error. By referring to extracts from drafts and published versions of their novels, each author candidly discusses how she or he works, taking the reader step by step through the creative process to share the invisible hours of toil that shape a work of fiction. All faced problems and doubts, and solved them in sometimes startling ways. The authors are both widely experienced as teachers of literature and creative writing. Sue Woolfe is the author of the acclaimed novel “Painted Woman” and of textbooks for English classes about literature and language. Kate Grenville is the author of “The Writing Book: A Manual for Fiction Writers”, and several novels including the prize-winning “Lilian's Story”.
