A good addition to the library,
This review is from: Plot Versus Character: A Balanced Approach to Writing Great Fiction (Paperback)
Reading this book was like sitting down with a friend - a knowledgeable, enthusiastic (slightly caffeinated) friend - to analyze the reasons why solid stories grow out of compelling characters. Rich with examples and well balanced, Plot vs. Character will be a good investment for new writers and a good read for those experienced souls who still can benefit from that sit-down over coffee. My favorite line: "Don't leave this section until you could give a police artist such an excellent description of this character that it would lead to an arrest."
