it was ok
Read in June, 2007

This book, by Nancy Kress, was OK. Sure, it got me thinking about my characters but.. did it really do anything else?

I read the majority of it, occasionally skipped around. [I don't need to read about first person, I'm in third. I don't need to choose genre characters, it's literary.] It was helpful but... I just didn't care for it much.

And yet I find myself wanting to suggest it to people. There are some really good ideas in it, and true I am thinking about my characters differently. But I think I learned things that I already knew I should do, but they were buried too far into my brain for me to remember them, and this pulled them to the surface. It's like one giant reminder about what you should be doing with your characters.
