Debra Spark's Curious Attractions remains a hugely popular fiction writing guide thirteen years after its publication. Now, she tackles the thorniest aspects of literary fiction craft: plot, humor, research, scope, and more. In And Then Something Happened, Spark brings her widely-loved wisdom, wit, and care to these nuanced essays, full of examples, anecdotes, and analysis of your favorite writers' approaches to crafting stories and novels, plus a moving essay about the danger many of us face as we face the blank page.
