  4. I m not a writer or an editor I m just a person who loves to read and learn, and I definitely learned a lot from this book This is not a book on grammar, but on writing fiction Browne and King cover many topics some of which are show vs tell, monologue, beats, proportion, and repetition.I loved the way the book was structured Each chapter has several examples, a checklist, and exercises...

  5. I should have read this book seven years ago, which is when I bought it I find non fiction and any story lacking the presence of aliens difficult to focus on, though Maybe I thought having it on my shelf, or the simple purchase, itself, would make me a better writer I could look up at the spine now and again and say, Yeah I have that book I m a writer I am a writer anyone can be one of those But according to this book, I m not a very good one Yet I ll get there, but it won t be becau I should have read this book seven years ago, which is when I bought it I find non fiction a...
