    Writing the Other eBook Ä Writing the PDF/EPUB or ↠ PDF tyrakel.de writing mobile, other kindle, Writing the pdf, Writing the Other eBookI would recommend this book to every writer A little bit to writers of sci fifantasy but really everyone Though it specifically focuses on people of color it's a primer on how to make sure you're appropriately incorporating the other into the world of your fiction that is to say people who aren't like you Even if you're a white person living in Sweden writing about white Swedes there are presumably still people who are different enough from you gay disabled poor who ought to exist in your novel and be represented as full characters Shawl and Ward's book tells you how to make a start The reason they wrote this book is because many writers are so afraid of making a mistake when writing about racially different characters that they decide it's safer to write about what you know and not do it at all As a result lite

    Writing the Other eBook Ä Writing the PDF/EPUB or ↠ PDF tyrakel.de writing mobile, other kindle, Writing the pdf, Writing the Other eBookI found this extremely underwhelming If you're the sort of person who would seek out a book like this you're probably already familiar with pretty much every point they make and they don't even make them in any particular detail or with any especially enlightening examples The main thesis is that it's better for dominantmajority group writers to try and fail than it is for them to actively avoid diversity in their books at all which I guess is just a matter of giving writers who want to do this permission to do it Of course the rest of the book is about the important caveat that writers should try to do a good job writing about people
