Publisher: Oxford

Chris Edge has created an interesting and detailed guide to writing stories. He gives clear explanations for literary words and uses quotes from a wide range of stories as examples which help the reader better understand how professional writers write stories.

The first half of the book focuses on stories in general with ideas about a range of topics including creating characters, starting stories and plot development. Later in the book there are sections devoted to the wide range of different genres you might like to try writing from crime and thrillers to comedy and romance. Each story type is accompanied by useful hints, tips and vocabulary suggestions. 

If you have ever thought that you would like to write a story but you were not sure where to start then this is definitely the book for you.
