Many Genres One Craft

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.
