Writing Great Stories: Quest for the Golden Quill-(Interview with Charles Hampton)- POS005

“Far better to write in cold blood that which makes your reader’s blood run cold than to compose in passion that which leaves your reader cold. It is the purpose of writing craft—a repertoire of fiction techniques—to provide the author with tools needed to evoke from the reader any response desired.”The Golden Quill
