Blog series focuses on fiction technique: As a writer and writing teacher, I am often asked for suggestions regarding the writing art. In response I've started a new blog series focused on writing technique, derived from essays I've written over the years. The posts explore conventional considerations such as point of view, dialogue, narrative compression, etc., as well as subtler aspects of the writing process and the writer's life -- the magic of it. Recent posts: Beginnings, Distant and Close; Ruminations on James Alan McPherson. www.danielhechtblog.com
