All about books and pdfs

As always, you are the only one who can determine how to proceed with your own novel. I personally think it’s a good idea to do a draft of your book first using the tools from my earlier tutorial but the most important thing you have to realize is that “the art of fiction” by david lodge pdf allows for a lot of flexibility. You decide if you want to only focus on crafting characters and dialogue or use plot structure etc as well. Just keep in mind that these aren’t set rules and guidelines, there is no one way to write a novel they should just be used as places to start your thoughts and get them down on paper.


The Art of Fiction, an Essay by David Lodge is a fresh and insightful guide to literature. It emphasizes the importance of style and technique in fictional writing. The book opens with two short chapters that define the essence of fiction and frequently asked questions about fiction, including how it differs from other literary genres. The remaining five chapters are devoted to the art of crafting a story.


David Lodge’s two most famous books are “Changing Places” and “Small World”, both of which were made into fine motion pictures. His third book, “The Art Of Fiction” is a guide to the novel or story and how it works. It takes the reader through the intricacies and subtleties of creating fiction and tells how why you should do it, what you can learn from it, when you should do it, how to come up with ideas, where to find them if they don’t pop out at you, how to make characters and other elements in fiction.
