very useful purchase,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Write Short Stories and Get Them Published: Teach Yourself (Paperback)
As a beginner - I have only written three stories so far - I find this book very helpful. It contains exercises to stimulate the imagination, and plenty of advice and information. It also tells one what not to do. It has advice on research for writers of fiction, and explains the various genres into which ones work might fall. I was pleased to find that I have a genre - it is magical realism.
As I write only for my own enjoyment, the section on getting published is not relevant to me and I can't comment on it.
I would certainly recommend this book.
