Review:
An essential to any writer's library, What If? is comprised entirely of specific exercises intended to help the reader master the art of writing fiction. The exercises isolate the various elements of fiction - dialogue, plot, characterization, point- of-view, etc. - and present specific problems to solve through writing. Directed toward both beginners and professional writers, this book addresses topics such as discovering where to start and end a story; learning when to use dialogue and when to use indirect discourse; transforming real events into fiction; and finding language that both sings and communicates precisely. For those interested in writing fiction.

Review:
This how-to-write fiction book is comprised primarily of exercises introduced by brief but informative essays on the aspects of fiction.

The elements of fiction—character, point of view, dialogue, plot, style and revision. For those interested in improving fiction-writing skills.
