After a quick review of the five main elements of craft in storytelling -- characterization, plot, story, narration, and theme -- Elizabeth Lyon clearly illustrates with plentiful examples how to use all five of those elements in building layer upon layer of subtext. As an independent book editor, author, and writing teacher for the past twenty-five years, Ms. Lyon draws from her wealth of knowledge and experience to provide fresh insight into the subject of subtext. As she so artfully explains, it takes thought, planning and often, multiple revisions to create the full emotional impact of "the story beneath the story." The first in a projected series of booklets, WRITING SUBTEXT is a must-have for writers at every level. I look forward to learning as much from each of the forthcoming booklets as in the past I have gained from (and my writing has been enriched by) my study of Ms Lyon's previous excellent books on writing -- especially MANUSCRIPT MAKEOVER, which I heartily recommend. Thank you, Elizabeth Lyon!
