Visit Storycraft, Tim’s blog dedicated to craft analysis for fiction writers. As the late Terry Pratchett put it: “Read with the mind-set of a carpenter looking at trees.” Craft analysis is a crucial complement to any novelist or short story writer’s creative work. It’s a way to increase one’s range, address one’s weaknesses or shortcomings, and add new tools to one’s authorial toolbox. Featured authors include Hemingway, Steinbeck, Hilary Mantel, Edith Wharton, James Joyce, Cormac McCarthy, Ian McKewen, Hilary Mantel, John Le Carré, Anthony Doerr, Donna Tartt, Ray Bradbury, JRR Tolkien, Phillip Pullman, George RR Martin, Peter Carey, John Fowles, Leslie Marmon Silko, and many, many others.
