This review is from: The Writer's Compass: From Story Map to Finished Draft in 7 Stages (Paperback)
Masterful. I have really used this book as a tool to improve my own fiction writing stage by stage. I have stacks of books on writing, but most are highly theoretical and I never found the tools I needed in any of them. Dodd's book is different. This is a real "how to" by someone who really understands the theory, craft, and art of writing. I think any aspiring writer or anyone with a story trapped inside should buy this book and keep it at hand.
Finally a book on how to write that actually teaches people how to write!
