I would recommend this book to all writers, particularly short story writers.
Mr. Butler also has a Creative writing video session in 17 videos on you tube. Very interesting to say the least, and challenges you to think and employ realism into any fiction story. Well worth the view, if you are patient.
Butler's approach is so creative and makes so much sense. He takes you into one of his classes and actually teaches you how to write a scene! I will have this book next to me like a bible every time I sit down to write!
If you are serious about becoming or improving your writing skills, this is the book you need!
I was so intrigued with this teacher and his process that I bought his Pulitzer Prize winning short stories "A Good Scent From A Strange Mountain:Stories" and was enchanted as I watched in awe the same creative process come out of him.
I am so very thankful for the labor of love it was to record his lectures. So very grateful.

From where you dream reads more like a nightmare in this person's humble opinion. Avoid like the plague!
Highly recommended, if you're not the 'plotting' type.
Just as highly recommended if you are ...
