Journal Entry 1 by kiroro on Monday, July 23, 2007
Not a very easy to read book although there are only five chapters. The author rambles about a wide range of literature from different time periods and countries to explain a particular concept that he values in writing a story.

Liked the chapter on "Quickness" the best as it is easy to understand and there is an interesting story at the beginning! Next would be "Visibility" as the author explains his childhood experience with it. This is followed by "Exactitude", "Multiplicity" and "Lightness". I have to admit that I still don't quite understand the concept of "Lightness" although the author gave a few examples on it.
