Creative Writing 101


Kurt Vonnegut created some of the most outrageously memorable novels of our time, such as Cat’s Cradle, Breakfast Of Champions, and Slaughterhouse Five. His work is a mesh of contradictions: both science fiction and literary, dark and funny, classic and counter-culture, warm-blooded and very cool. And it’s all completely unique.


Trait 1
Trait #1 memorable novels of our time, such as 

Use the time of a total stranger in such a way that he or she will not feel the time was wasted.


Trait 2
Trait #2 memorable novels of our time, such as 

Give the reader at least one character he or she can root for.


Trait 3
Trait #3 memorable novels of our time, such as 

Every character should want something, even if it is only a glass of water.


Trait 4
Trait #4 memorable novels of our time, such as 

Every sentence must do one of two things—reveal character or advance the action.


Trait 5
Trait #5 memorable novels of our time, such as 

  • Trait #2

Start as close to the end as possible.


Trait 6
Trait #6 memorable novels of our time, such as 

Be a sadist. No matter how sweet and innocent your leading characters, make awful things happen to them—in order that the reader may see what they are made of.


Trait 7
Trait #7 memorable novels of our time, such as 

Write to please just one person. If you open a window and make love to the world, so to speak, your story will get pneumonia.


Trait 8
Trait #8 memorable novels of our time, such as 

Give your readers as much information as possible as soon as possible. To heck with suspense. Readers should have such complete understanding of what is going on, where and why, that they could finish the story themselves, should cockroaches eat the last few pages.
