Robert Olen Butler, winner of the Pulitzer Prize in Fiction, teaches graduate fiction at Florida State University — his version of literary boot camp. In From Where You Dream, Butler reimagines the process of writing as emotional rather than intellectual, and tells writers how to achieve the dreamspace necessary for composing honest, inspired fiction. Proposing that fiction is the exploration of the human condition with yearning as its compass, Butler reinterprets the traditional tools of the craft using the dynamics of desire. Offering a direct view into the mind and craft of a literary master, From Where You Dream is an invaluable tool for the novice and experienced writer alike.

Have you ever wanted to learn how to write a book? This unpretentious little guide through the perils of writing fiction follows the process through four stages: gathering the raw material, planning, rough draft writing, and revision. The principles and craft of novel writing can be taught - and with lots of practice you can learn how to write! Novelist Dan Brown shares not only his own experience on how to write a novel but also the thoughts of many classic masters of fiction. Teachers call it "common-sensical and wise," raising the right questions and offering suggestions, never rules. Beginning writers call it "reassuring" yet "demanding." Experienced writers say they dip into it again when beginning a novel "or just when I feel low." Beginning writers following this step by step plan will complete a finished novel by the end of this course of study. "Concise and to-the-point. This book is not just about writing; it's about being who you are and doing what you can." - Writer's Digest

"This book offers a unique interpretation of traditional workshop instruction by showing teachers how to integrate their separate reading and writing workshops into one 'literacy workshop' (periodically and as dictated by student needs) that takes advantage of the inherent reciprocity between reading and writing. Through narrative discussion, student samples, photographs, instructional resources, online content, suggested lessons and various mentor texts, the book explains the structure of the literacy workshop, tells readers how to get started with it, and shows them how to decide when it's best to merge the two workshops into one. The book is divided into two parts. Part I (Chapters 1-4) lays the foundation and gives the nuts and bolts of literacy workshop. Part II (Chapters 5-9) includes engagement/strategy/topic focused demonstration lessons - which includes a primary and an intermediate level example lesson for each Big Idea"--
