An useful book to a beginner writer

by Petrus on Nov 13, 2008

What if is an interesting book for whow is now begging to read about the craft of writing, or just wanna to masterize his skills with helpful exercises. In comparison with other books, much more brilliant about writing itself, like the wonderful Teoria y tecnica del cuento, from E. A. Imbert, the book is very disapointing. However, I don't think that the authors of What if intended do go much deep in theorical or philosophical problems of writing. It's a book of exercises, nothing more then that.


it juices up your brain.

First make sure to get at least the 2nd edition of this book-- I accidentally ordered the first ed. which is still good, but 300 pages shorter and missing all the short stories in the 2nd edition and beyond. It's not a "here are five steps to write a novel." Instead, it helps you think like a writer and juice up some hot ideas in your head.


What every writer needs in their arsenal
