By Dan Poynter VINE VOICE on October 3, 2000
Format: Paperback
While novels and plays benefit from dramatic writing, even nonfiction books can be made more fun to read.
In a step-by-step style, Cannon describes dramatic structure, the acts of a play, character, plotting, tricks of the trade, finding/fixing faults and writing fast. He shows the difference between novels and plays and discusses the business side of writing.
Cannon has written over 30 screenplays for various major studios and producers, including Robert Altman's cult classic Brewster McCloud.
As the author of 113 books (including revisions and foreign-language editions) and over 500 magazine articles, I recommend this volume to writers. DanPoynter@ParaPublishing.com.

The information may well be good, but who can find it? The lines of type overlap each other. Didn't anyone bother to proof this before it went to press? Sheesh!
