“Learning from Mailer: Toss Plot, Focus on Character.” Article by Emily C. Dooley. Cape Cod Times, 11 July. The writer observes Mailer’s writing workshop at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown. The brunt of his presentation is on the dangers of plotting a novel too tightly beforehand. “I don’t want my story to be in place before my characters develop,” he said. He also compared and contrasted first and third person points of view.
