‘Memories are nothing less than bits of gold waiting to be mined from the veins of life.’ But, how to mine those bits of gold and turn them into stories that others will enjoy reading? In this nonfiction how-to, the author sets out a brand new set of writers’ tools to help you do just that.
Snaps, Scraps and Snippets really is a valuable book! And a lot is packed into its pages. Not only does Funk show you how to implement the advice given in the book, but there is also a lot of exercises contained within its covers.
I can see this book working for writers of both non-fiction and fiction, as you would also be able to see better what makes them tick.
Of course, the book is aimed at writing non-fiction – mostly poems and essays – and Funk gives many examples of poems written through the techniques explained in Snaps, Scraps and Snippets. I know that I’ll definitely be writing a lot more creative non-fiction now!
