5.0 out of 5 stars Aha Moment, 6 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: "Shut UP!" He Explained: A Writer's Guide to the Uses and Misuses of Dialogue (Classic Wisdom on Writing) (Kindle Edition)
I am a new Writer and was happily producing "essays" and "dissertations",without knowing. I found myself with a beautifully written, descriptive, emotive, REALLY BORING passage in my latest novella and was stuck in my uselessness. My degree is in Business, my hands are artistic and I have never done a creative writing course in my life. Then I bought this book. And it has changed my life. I went back to the REALLY boring sludge and Yeay, moved the story on- with dialogue. I had read some of the books used as examples and could actually see what the author was trying to HELP me see. Reading some of the other reviews I noticed that one said that he would have fathomed all this out for himself - eventually. Smart arse. Isn't that the point of a book like this? My kids could have fathomed out how to walk - eventually, but did it a lot quicker because I helped them. Being over sixty I haven't time to fathom it out for myself, I'll take all the help I can get. Now, what else has he written?
Great stuff!!
