Apr 17, Rebekah rated it really liked it 1 Sentence Summary: Advice on writing. My Thoughts: The advice was pretty good and helpful but not the best Ive seen. Recommend to: Aspiring writers. The first part of the book, which deals with different "shapes" of fiction thus explaining the somewhat embarrassing title is excellent. The A-Z section, though, is a bit didactic, and lacks the fun and creative tone of the first half although the examples of good and bad prose are equally entertaining- where are they from?

Still, this section has some good advice and insights, and by the end the tone has lightened up a bit and it seems less preachy and patronizing. Altogether this is a very good writing book, as far as writing books go. I say this as someone who owns scores of how-to-write books and has been reading them for the past 40 years.

I came across this book as required reading in the now defunct UC Davis creative writing program. I could see immediately why they chose it. The first half of the book is outstanding, the second half merely great. The first half discusses a variety of story-forms, structures, that are useful to solve problems or Wow.

The first half discusses a variety of story-forms, structures, that are useful to solve problems or achieve a result. The book came close to making me switch from poetry writing to fiction writing in grad school. Caution: it makes it nearly impossible to ignore the "novel ideas" drawer in your desk.
