You should be reading “Wonderbook: The Illustrated Guide to creating Imaginative Fiction”

I’m serious. Even if you’re not a writer the book is so beautifully illustrated that even if the words weren’t great (which they are) the paintings alone make it worth the price.

P. 149:

“A narrative structure that’s about absence as well as presence also speaks to the creative dialogue between writer and reader and demonstrates that creating space in your fiction for the reader to participate is not always about accessibility but can be about generating opportunities for readers to engage in storytelling, which is crucial for the writer’s success.”

-Jeff VanDermeer.
