Unfortunately I did not get to use this book in class at all.
The examples on everything really helped to better grasp intended message to readers bases on writing styles. For people who are not great writers and easily blank on how to begin, the stories used at examples was a great way to warm up your thoughts and to stop second guessing your own writing and ideas.read more
How to describe settings and emotions on a deeper and clearer level as well as methods to brainstorming an original story and knowing your characters. Settings and emotion are important, but should not be over done and should take readers someplace they do not normally see or get to experience. An original story takes time, but when you take the time for an idea you like it is easier to write whereas if you are not fond or excited about the idea it becomes a chore. Really sticking to a character on a personal level made my stories more interactive to my classmates.

It gave great examples of solid writing that were enjoyable to read, and it gave great tips for improving my fiction.
It had all the reuired material in the book. I almost never had to look through an outside source.read more
I thought this book had very intersting stories in it.
This was definitely a lot more in depth and helpful than previous texts I've read on writing fiction. It's less 'do this' and 'do that' but rather poses serious questions needed that a young budding writer must consider.read more
I used this in a higher level fiction class, and it was especially helpful to explain basic concepts needed to organize thoughts and ideas for a writer. It cleans up some of the chaos and clutter that all-too-often fills the mind of a young writer. In class we used the excerpts and chapters as a basis for in and out of class exercises.
