I teach creative writing in the UCLA Writer's Program (online) and always recommend this book to my students as one of the two best books (along with Janet Burroway's "Writing Fiction") on the craft of writing ever penned. I have used the information in this book time and again in writing my own novels and stories ("The Death of Tarpons" (novel), "Monday's Meal" (story collection), "Over Easy" (thriller forthcoming from Random House, 1999). A more intelligent book than this has yet to be written. If you aspire to create memorable, quality prose, you must buy this book! It will aid you throughout your writing career in thousands of ways. Five stars is not enough to award this book, which I'm sure is destined to become a classic if it is not already considered so.

This is a good one - witty and readable, with substance on every page, very good exercises and many valuable comments on craft from outstanding fiction writers. After reading about half of it, I wanted to quit my job and start writing a novel right then, but that's not an option, so I settled for reading it straight through and am now going through it a chapter at a time, doing the exercises in the order they are presented. Bernays and Painter are both obviously wonderful teachers, and for those of us who don't have access to classrooms like theirs, this generous and encouraging text is the next best thing. One caution: This isn't a book for any writer who isn't planning to work at it!

I am a young writer that lives overseas, where it is hard to find a creative writing workshop. This book proves to be a terrific reference again and again- its exercises are inspiring, quick and self-explanatory, and are full of hints for improving your writing. I would recommend this book to anyone seeking to improve their writing... you will find it invaluable!

This book is a wonderful guide for those who enjoy putting pen to page.
The exercises take you in small steps from understanding basic principles of writing such as point of view to plot development and revision.
The principle behind each exercise is explained and there is usually a student example of the exercise.
I would recommend this book to anyone looking for concrete ways to improve their writing.

This is an excellent book that gives concise and usefull exercises and tips, rather than babbling about philosophical implications, metaphysical and spiritual nonsense in fiction like other writing workshop authors do. You really get to improve your writing with these simple and fun exercises.

to appreciate the writing jumpstarts presented in "What If?" However, the exercises outlined in this book will have you writing, and more importantly, thinking like a writer. More than 75 exercises for the beginning to advanced writer. Welcome this helpful source to your library!

I am a beginning writer with very little experience. This book, along with "Writing Down the Bones"(Natalie Goldberg) and "The Art of Fiction"(John Gardner), is an absolute must if you want to write satisfying and realistic stories.

I have scores of books on writing, and this is among the very best. It not only teaches, but prompts story ideas at every turn. Truly worth your time and money

this book might well be suitable for those taking creative writing classes. advanced writers though will only be able to make use of it if endless chatter and deeply psychological melodrama are their means of choice.

it might also drive you insane, that throughout the book only female pronouns are used.

those who dream of becoming another rosamunde pilcher: this is your manual!
