The Art and Craft
This mini-topic comes from the Creative Pen.
There’s a difference between the ‘art’ of writing and the ‘craft’ of writing. Art is subjective, its beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder … but craft is objective. There is a right way and a wrong way to craft.
One of my favorite reference books is The Art and Craft of Novel Writing and beneath this book on my stack is The Art of Fiction.
Writers need a toolbox including the essential tools of grammar and punctuation combined with our voice, our unique story. Novel writing is not something to be entered into lightly.
