really liked it
bookshelves: writing

Designed to be a creative writing textbook and it is a good teaching book. Twenty-seven stories with comments and suggestions from the authors of the stories, followed by writing exercises. Van Cleve and Pierce contribute excellent essays and writing prompts on prewriting, writing, developing characters, point of view, constructing scenes, and revising.
