Excellent resource for novelists. I highly recommend it for those moments you're just stuck in a descriptive rut. ( )

Terrific and useful tool for writing. ( )

This is a wonderful resource for writers. I keep this book right next to my computer and routinely turn to it for insight and ideas when I am dealing with a character or scene. ( )

I got this book quite a while ago and never added it to my shelves because it's not really a book you read. It's a reference tool. Recently though I've found myself recommending it to other writers and I realized that I should really add a review of this on good reads.

So this is my review: get this book. If you are a writer, you should have this. I know what you're thinking, "Books about writing are usually so useless," and you'd be right. I've read enough of them to know that 99% of them are, in fact, useless. This is not one of those books. Stick this one next to The Writer's Journey and The Elements of Style. It's a keeper. ( )

I think that this is a good entry in a field that I have noticed that remained empty for a long time. Is this the birth of a new era for this category of books?
I keep a copy of this book open as I write.
