Writing Stories: Ideas, Exercises, and Encouragement for Teachers and Writers of All Ages
Coman, Carolyn
Stenhouse Publishers
Award-winning author Carolyn Coman has made a career out of writing stories for children and young adults as well as teaching writing to people of all ages. She believes that the essence of good writing, no matter the genre, is the ability to craft a solid story. In this innovative book, Carolyn provides advice, strategies, and inspiration focusing on the key elements of stories: character development, plot, voice and dialogue, point of view, and place and time. Carolyn confesses her own struggles with writing and helps make the writing process less intimidating for students and teachers alike. "I am speaking directly to you--the writing teacher who writes, or who wants to write, or is tiptoeing toward writing scared to death. Everything in this book about writing is for you, too--every tip and exercise and encouragement."
