Good advice carefully and clearly given. Lots of suggested reading...with helpful points on what those authors/books do particularly well. An array of exercises to get the juices flowing, ideas generated, and stretch those writing muscles. Nothing earth shattering or eye opening here, but for new and new-ish writers looking for a patient and friendly guide to new terrain or encouraging voice reminding you what you need to, well, remember this is a quick and accessible guide to character creation ...more
Lots of great reads for Writing and getting structural ideas. And I liked all the ideas for beginning new pieces. I haven't had writer's block just liked all the suggestions for new ideas. Still wasn't sold on buying a copy for myself.

I was born on 30 October 1955 in San Francisco, California, and attended Lafayette Elementary School in San Francisco. Then my family moved to New York City, where I attended William H. Carr Junior High School. This is a school picture of me from my junior high school days. After that we moved to Houston, and I went to Westchester High School and on to Rice University.
