Review by

A very helpful - if lightweight - book about writing short stories, with advice on characterisation, plot, ideas and a great deal more. No exercises, but some suggestions for getting started, and some useful chapters on finding a market, submitting, and keeping records. <br/><br/>Della Galton has a breezy, friendly style which makes the book very readable, with plenty to inspire and encourage. There are tips from other writers at the end of most chapters. <br/><br/>My only minor problem with this book was that the pages weren't laid out very well - there were fairly frequent places where a heading of a new section within a chapter was at the bottom of the previous page. But even that didn't distract from the excellence of the writing and advice.
