Robert Olen Butler, winner of the Pulitzer Prize in Fiction, teaches graduate fiction at Florida State University — his version of literary boot camp. In From Where You Dream, Butler reimagines the process of writing as emotional rather than intellectual, and tells writers how to achieve the dreamspace necessary for composing honest, inspired fiction.

As I have an acting background--a B.A. in Theatre Arts, Performance, from U.S.F.-- I can say with great confidence that Robert Olen Butler has created a 'Method-Writing' inspired by Konstantin Stanislavsky.More of a 'Why-To', than a mere 'how-to', Mr. Butler gives specific exercises to help unlock the subconscious, and generate better writing... Stanislavsky said his Method was 'The Conscious means to the Unconscious.'.Mr. Butler will have you writing, literally, 'From Where You Dream.' I've already had great success by following his suggestions and utilizing the exercises--I am more disciplined, and creating more, and enjoying the process,too! I recommend this book very highly. When I do volunteer work at Open Mics, and in schools, I always tell the kids, and the teachers, and professors, about this book.
