    Thanks for your feedback!


    I was a little disappointed that too much of this book contains copy-and-paste (one direction or the other) information from, or at least can be found on, the author's own blog. Much of what I was reading felt like I was just reading it again, and that wasn't just a feeling, it was because I was. Still, I wouldn't have bought the book and read it to completion if of course I didn't enjoy the majority of Marcy's advice. At the beginning she mentioned she didn't want to make a series of craft books that were full of examples and prose and theory without explaining the practice effectively, but I didn't like the lack of examples on a few topics. There were examples, but few, and several topics lacked any at all, and some concepts remained a little ambiguous and poorly explained to me personally because of it. I've just started reading Mastering Showing And Telling In Your Fiction (I believe that is the title) and from the very beginning it assaults me with many more well-written examples for each point needs to get across, and I think it's the better book because of it. Regardless, I still read and finished the book. I'm not very good at giving ratings, but you can see mine above.
