    7. Fiction is not life as it is lived but a different life, conjured out of the materials supplied by life without fiction, real life would be a paler and drearier affair This looks like a whimsical collection of informal correspondence, but is really a dense and complex study of novel writing technique It challenged me, and it gave names to methods I had seen and probably subconsciously attempted , like levels of reality and shifts and communicating vessels Best of all, it gave me ideas Writing is [...]
