I’ve read quite a few “how to write” books, especially in my earlier days as a novice writer. This one is, by far, one of the best. I enjoyed how it is laid out more as “lessons” than a rambling “how to.” I read one “lesson” per day, and it felt like I was back in college. (I loved creative writing classes, by the way. This wasn’t a chore at all!)
The lessons are written by well-known authors. In particular, Maria V. Snyder jumped out at me. Each lesson is well-written and thought-rpoviking. It feels as if the writers are talking to you personally.
My favorite section involved characters and dialogue. It worked out well for an area I was struggling with while writing my current manuscript.
