I would like to be a more discerning reader so have collected a number of books such as this one - books that describe how fiction works. I also have some story ideas percolating in my head, that one day I may try to write. For the more experienced fiction/creative writers, this may be just what you are looking for. But for me, the ultra novice, "don't know what I am doing" wanna-be-writer, it was difficult to get through, overwhelming and discouraging. I was happy to find out that it isn't just me - other people on Goodreads felt the same way.
