You'll Love This Book If:

  • You are interested in writing a sci-fi or fantasy novel
  • You are a fan of Orson Scott Card
  • You need help writing your novel

Hugo award-winner Orson Scott Card shares his advice on how to create fantastical, yet believable settings, how to develop fantastic story ideas, and ultimately how to break into the field of science fiction and fantasy writing.

A Word From The Book's Introduction:

"A successful writer needs three attributes:
  • Talent, which is innate. No one can teach you talent.
  • Craft, which can be learned. As you'll see in a moment, Scott Card not only has learned the craft of writing; in this book he's teaching it.
  • Perseverance. Of the three, the most important is perseverance. Writing is a hard, lonely, often bitter calling. Only tremendous perseverance can see a writer through the pains of disappointment and rejection. Only those writers who persevere can become successful.

    But craft is almost equally important. A carpenter who can't drive nails straight isn't going to make much of a living as a carpenter. Neither will a writer who cannot construct stories well.In this book Orson Scott Card tells you what you need to know to construct publishable stories in the demanding, exciting, volatile field of science fiction and fantasy." — Ben Bova
