I am generally a fan of dummies books (while not the best style, they are consistent and only presents information that is well-accepted by professionals in the industry). While I have studied writing at the post-secondary level, a traumatic event became associated with writing for me and I hadn’t written a word for well over a decade. Spontaneously, I began writing again, but I could tell immediately that I am not at my former level.

While this book did not help remind me of everything I once knew, it had great coverage of the basics including structure and housekeeping (also referred to as paperwork). I appreciate that they emphasized that planner writers and improvisational writers are equivalent and equally talented; approach is individual, and gets you to the same place. It is going to help me get my novel to the next level, even if I see how many more levels I have to go.

The publishing information is quite dated, though I am reading a 2010 edition. Not only did it gloss over some important aspects to publishing that I learned in school, it does not represent the current industry. Now, I still read it over to (a) remind me of what I learned then and since; and (b) can be easier to update yourself than learn new, especially since now you have an idea of what questions to ask (not all, but a place to start).

I read Writing Fiction for Dummies first and then How to Write a Damn Good Novel. I thought that How to Write a Damn Good Novel was simpler and therefore better; however, on a second browse, Writing Fiction for Dummies seems to have more depth--although I did use some of its ideas, perhaps it was too much for me to learn at that time. I will keep it in my reference library along with Poetics, Strunk and White, and How to Write a Damn Good Novel. ( )

Writing fiction for dummies is a guide for writers the covers of on pretty much everything you need to know about writing.

The Bad Stuff: There is a fair bit of repetition in this book.

The Good Stuff: This book has a heap of useful information for writers that are beginning their journey. Even intermediate writers will get a lot from this book.

On the whole this is a very informative read, it covers off on pretty much everything. If you are just starting out as a writer and looking for a book with info on writing techniques, planning, editing and publishing, this would be a good choice. It gets 4 out of 5 golden bookmarks from me. ( )

This book has a lot of good information and is a very helpful writing guide. The main reason I only gave it three stars is because it suffers from the same type of bloat I see in a lot of writing guides. Too much repeating the same information and too much cross-referencing (i.e., "we discuss this topic more in Chapter Two...etc., etc.). ( )

Even though I've been writing for most of my life, it's always super nice to find resources that outline how I should be writing, what I can do to improve (because let's face it, you're never completely done learning, even when you think you are) and how to make my stories the best they can possibly be. Written in a light-hearted, humorous sort of way, Ingermanson takes his readers on a journey into the world of fantastical character development and arching story plots. ( )
