I was introduced to this book last year through participation of an Open University online course so got myself a copy It s written in plain English without the sanctimonious habit many instructive authors have of loading everything with mysterious jargon andor elusive frilly words not used since Dickens was a lad This means that it s a book which extends a welcome to new writers rather than making them feel out of their depth As a seasoned author himself Novakovich is able to justify his lessons and examples through his own experiences He does however honestly state that these are just his experiences and in no way intended to dismiss methods others support This makes the book as welcoming to other experienced writers too because it doesn t disregard what they have to sayI ve read other reviews and many of them allude to the extensive amount of exercises at the end of each chapter Some have insisted it s top heavy in that respect Is it I challenge that and assert that writing as a profession is bloody hard work If a reader is serious about becoming a professional writer then these exercises are really just the tip of the iceberg and a realistic way of setting expectations of what needs to be done to succeed I still have many of these exercises to do and will continue to redo them in the futureOverall I think it s an excellent guide providing the reader has an open mind and a good work ethic

A great source for fiction writers although it falls short in some areas Each section begins with a lecture of some sort with examples and thoughts then numerous assignmentsIt s divided into Sources of Fiction Setting Character Plot Point of View Dialogue and Scenes Beginnings and Endings Description and Word Choice Voice then RevisionThe chapter on gathering story ideas is pretty generic but useful in a broad way He lists some general things to trigger your thinking like childhood friends stories you hear but that s as far as it goesSetting is divided into many sections all useful very informative alive with detail If you had a problem with setting before this is up your alleyThe character section discusses round characters their mannerisms appearance etc It has useful comments but again is all generalPlot is a great chapter he discusses character conflict plots non confrontational plots and combinations He mentions a note card techniue for generating plots but as before it s of an educational guide and not an inspirational one I didn t find much useful advice for organizing or structuring a storyHis point of view is loaded with stuff I ve never seen before I consider this one of the best chapters the book offersThe only problems I had was the guide was written in a sort of stuffy way at times Also many of the story examples used were not works I read or have an interest in reading literary types work that you focus on in school Because of this it was a bit harder for me to get drawn into these sorts of examplesOverall though it s a great guide for writing itself not necessarily novel writing or short stories alone
