attention Are you a lazy agent I am a writer with an invisible antennae I have filled dozens of notebooks with my words In 1988, Patricia Highsmith, the author of The Talented Mr Ripley and Strangers on a Train lamented that many American magazines that used to buy short stories have folded It is thirty years later and prospects are even gloomier She also began The Talented Mr Ripley in a cottage in Massachusetts and read Alexis de Tocqueville s Democracy in America in preparation She hangs her writing awards in her bathroom A book is a really long continuous process, which ideally, should be interrupted only by sleep 73 The objective of the writer is to write something saleable Maybe much of luck for the writer comes from having the right publicity at the right time, and this I do discuss here ix To all beginners, I give credit for being writers already, since they intend, for better or worse, to rusk exposing their emotions, their quirks, their attitude toward life, to public scrutiny ix Stories need to be gripping.Suspense stories have a threat of violent physical action and danger A book is not a thing of one sitting, like a poem, but a longish thing which takes time and energy and since it takes skill, too, the first effort or maybe the second may not find a market 15 SUSPENSE SHORT STORIES CAN TAKE PLACE OVER A SPAN OF 5 MINUTES write down all those slender ideas 36 Stories can develop in six weeks or three years of slow brewing If the writer can thicken the plot and surprise the reader, the plot is logically improved 38 DO NO USE THE SAME PERSONALITY AND PHYSICAL APPEARANCE OF SOMEBODY THAT YOU KNOW.OUTLINE THE PLOT.PLOT SHOULD NOT BE RIGID I create things out of boredom with reality and with the sameness of routine and objects around me 49 SOME BOOKS DO NOT HAVE A CLIMAX.CHAPTER OUTLINES ARE HELPFUL TOOLS.SURPRISE YOURSELF AND YOUR READER It is often possible to give the gist of a conversation of forty lines in three lines of prose 71 SOME FIRST DRAFTS ARE TOO BRIEF If the writer thinks about his material long enough, until it becomes a part of his mind and wakes up thinking about it then at least when he starts to work, it will flow out as if by itself 76 A sense of pride in your work is essential 77 Writing is a way of organizing experience and life itself 80 TAKE EVERY OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE S PROFESSIONS.The joy of writing cannot truly be described in words It is then good to remember that artists have existed and persisted, like the snail and coelacanth and other changing forms of organic life since long before governments were dreamed of 145 The most important thing is Does the film work, is it believable 132 All the above is rot 5 Sincerely, The Writer In 1972 The Authors League reported that 95% of writers in America must hold another job all their lives to make ends meet.A sobering thought to end this book on the writer s craft from one of the greats of 20th century storytelling Remind me, why do I want to do this The talented Ms Highsmith is not at her most comfortable with this educational piece especially, as she says herself, she doesn t really consider herself a writer of suspense

end this book on the writer s craft from one of the greats of 20th century storytelling Remind me, why do I want to do this The talented Ms Highsmith is not at her most comfortable with this educational piece especially, as she says herself, she doesn t really consider herself a writer of suspense fiction or a fan of the label created by American publishers There are a lot of interesting anecdotes and she doesn t hold back in her contempt of hack writers and an unnamed author of the time who liked to have buildings or bridges explode in his forgettable tales peopled by nonentities This is less a self help or how to guide than an exploration of how she crafted her novels and approached the creative side of things, with useful pointers thrown in along the way and as such it may beinteresting for people to read as biographical material and less for beginners looking for tips on how to write.What I have learned from reading this is that Patricia Highsmith loved being a writer and quite often hated it too I like to read these writer s tips sort of books once in a while, just to get to know how their minds function.Patricia Highsmith s book is nothing great very light fare, in fact The advice is pretty much standard jot down your ideas, allow them to develop, pay proper attention to plotting, the first draft, the second draft, revisionsBut it was very enjoyable to read how she actually plotted her stories Two pieces of advice stayed in the mind The plot It should be tight absolutely wa I like to read these writer s tips sort of books once in a while, just to get to

absolutely waterproof Patricia explains how she laboured over and over to get the plotting and pacing just right Gone Girl is an example of how a plot can be full of holes, like a sieve, BTW according to me, at least.The characterisation Even though it is sometimes given short shrift in suspense novels, the ones with the stronger characters endure The recent suspense movie in Malayalam, Drishyam, is a fine example of how strong characterisation helps suspense, IMO Patricia gives us one chapter on the germination and development of one of her novels, The Glass Cell This was very enjoyable reading.However, the book may be said to contain spoilers, so be warned Patricia Highsmith is the godmother of psychological suspense I would go so far as to say that she is one of the most important influences on modern crime fiction This book is less nuts and bolts than its title implies, andthe philosophies and observations of a writer at work.
