I ve actually read this short book on the art of writing a novel without relying on outlines or other machinations three times now That as much as anything tells me it s a book I value and that the advice inside unlike that of so many fiction guides is both valuable and warrants returning to now and againOne advantage Smith has over so many other would be writing gurus is that he can actually back up his claims through his own work over two hundred novels published over a hundred of those through traditional publishers and six or seven hundred short stories So much of the time when I find a book on outlining I look up the author s work read the first page and find myself doubting the virtue of their advice But than that Dean Wesley Smith offers some concrete ways to begin push through the middle and end novels without outlines which is a great deal helpful than the usual just listen to your muse form of pantsing one hears about it s worth noting that the term pantser not not explicitly pejorative seems exclusively used by people selling books on the importance plottingI can t say whether Smith s approach is definitively better than others After all there s no one correct way to write a book I say that having had ten novels published none of which followed the exact same process However here s what I can say with confidence the most important uality any book on writing should have is to make you want to put it down at the end and go write Every time I ve sat down with Dean Wesley Smith s Writing Into The Dark It s gotten me to run off and start writing myself That s five star writing advice as far as I m concerned
