***Novelist’s Essential Guide to Crafting Scenes
by Raymond Obstfeld
Writer’s Digest Books, 2000. 218 pages.
This is a good writing book, about the nitty-gritty of getting a novel written. I liked the approach of looking at individual scenes and how to craft them. There were some tips I had never heard before, and some exercises I want to try on my own writing.I didn’t particularly like his choice of examples, as they leaned toward being smutty or violent. However, he did a good job of conveying the craft of scene-writing.
