's review

it was amazing

Supported by great examples and clear tips, Le Guin provides the core foundations for fiction writing, plus a few hints for narrative non-fiction. The exercises are fun and relevant, and they make you think about the points you just read. My favourite tips were around creating memorable character names and how it's always a good idea to throw away the first 3 pages of anything (3 paragraphs for shorter works). I look forward to trying these!
