Ripped from the headlines

Newspapers B&W (5)

“Read your Sunday paper of choice to find material for your novel…

“Assume your character is reading the paper, and an article affects him…
Write about it.
“Now find a place for him to read the paper somewhere in your novel. It could be a paragraph, a sentence, a scene, a chapter— something he reads affects him strongly and we see how and why. And it will all have something to do with the theme of your novel.”
Is Life Like This?
—John Dufresne
