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.

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.
