Barbara Turner-Vesselago's first book, Writing Without a Parachute, showed writers how to fall in love with writing. This new book builds on this experience and encourages writers to pursue their work with intention and without inhibition. Freefall into Fiction: Finding Form is designed to help writers, step-by-step, to create publishable short stories, novels and memoirs by finding their own unique balance between the exploration offered by Freefall Writing and the requirements of each particular genre. This book penetrates deep inside the writing process where that balancing act takes place.

Reviews

Barbara maps the dangerous journey from intuitive 'free-fall' writing to consciously created fiction, making it exhilarating; a lucid, well researched and clearly illustrated guide we can safely follow. A fitting companion to her strongly recommended Writing Without a Parachute. * Dr Gillie Bolton, author of 12 books on writing including The Writer's Key: Introducing Creative Solutions for Life. * Not so much dipping the toe into writing as taking the plunge, in this book, Barbara Turner-Vesselago guides us through the heart of the creative process, using experiential exercises and practical tips to enable the aspiring writer to develop a 'first draft' into a more expanded and refined piece of work. I have wanted to write for years...this book made me feel that I can't wait to start! * Debra Penman, co-author of Writing Well: Creative Writing and Mental Health *
