Read from March 17 to April 10, 2012

This book gives some EXCELLENT advice on developing characters, choosing and implementing the proper point of view, and different ways to express emotions. Each chapter has great examples to learn from, and exercises at the end. I'll definitely be referring back to this book as I work on my own writing.
