really liked it
bookshelves: writing, science-fiction, fantasy, nonfiction

Some interesting new ideas or ways of looking at writing. But a lot of it is a rehash of things you already know if you read or write science fiction and fantasy extensively. Or if you've read other books about writing science fiction and fantasy. World-building, etc.

He also uses a fair amount of excerpts from his own writing. Which is useful in a way, but also annoying, especially when the excerpt goes on and on, as one sex/love scene example does.

Though I'll admit he did say some things about some of his books that intrigued me. I really should read some more of his novels.
