    1. Eventually, reading books about how to write is just another way to put off writing I ve said before that I think I ve exhausted what I can gain from such books, not because I m now the best writer I can be I m not, or at least I hope I m not but because you have to learn by doing, not by reading about it.That said, I begin to distinguish between writing advice books aimed at beginning, intermediate, and advanced writers Though the latter is hypothetical an advanced writer would presumably be so [...]

    2. At first this book seemed like a regurgitation of basic things I already knew But I hung in there and learned a lot I d advise any aspiring author to do the same.

    3. As the title says, this is a craft book for writers giving helpful guidance on creating believable characters, using emotion effectively and in a way that helps build character and add to the story, and choosing the correct point of view for your story Nancy Kress is a published author of both fiction and non fiction.The craft books I read, the less often I find anything really new to offer in terms of tips and advice Usually it s the same information in different dress Sometimes I find informa [...]

    4. A how to write book Covering exactly the topics described in the title.Goes into all sort of aspects, Like complicated motives, character change, the different types of POV first, third, omniscient, epistolary , humorous characters and how they differ from the usual rules, what you need to know about the character s background in order to write, the complications that you have view the character as the reader will, the importance of putting attitude into the description, and .

    5. This is a helpful book on creating character and one of the helpful writing books I ve read overall As a writer, for some regrettable reason I have a hard time absorbing the lessons in writing books this one actually reaches me somewhat Excellent exercises Writers should read it unless they ve already read many books on character.

    6. This book is about how to write characters with sufficient depth that readers will follow them through to the end of a story As the title suggests, there are three major components to the book character building, emotional considerations, and point of view A story requires a character who needs or wants something and faces barriers to that goal The character has to be someone that the reader is interested in seeing through a process that involves inching toward a goal while being repeatedly beat [...]

    7. I found this book to be very useful at helping me work through some issues with the characters in my novel The relatively narrow focus means Kress can delve deeply into each of the issues she covers The first seven chapters are about deciding and showing who your characters are, including how their outer presentation might not match their inner thoughts, and how they might or might not change over the course of the book I appreciated the level of detail here I thought I had a pretty good handle [...]

    8. Characters, Emotion Viewpoint Techniques and Exercises for Crafting Dynamic Characters and Effective Viewpoints Write Great Fiction by Nancy KressThis book is very similar to the author s Dynamic Characters How to Create Personalities That Keep Readers Captivated some of the text is word for word.This books covers topics and has writing exercises at the end of each chapter The book is written with very specific and helpful advice about the craft of writing and contains many examples from publis [...]

    9. I found this book to be about as helpful as Orson Scott Card s Characters and Viewpoint, but in depth If you aren t a beginner, some of it is a refresher, but there are things I hadn t learned about before In 16 chapters and three sections, Kress covers types of characters, introducing characters, characters genuine selves, character motivation, character change, protagonists in genre fiction, and humorous characters As for emotion, she talks about dialogue and thoughts, emotions through metaph [...]

    10. 4.5 s This book is a bit weak on developing characters see below , but strong on what to do with your characters once you develop them Topics such as motivation, emotion, dialogue, point of view, etc are covered.If you re looking for examples of characters, try The Complete Writer s Guide to Heroes and Heroines or 45 Master Characters Mythic Models for Creating Original Characters There are a number of other similar books, but those are two that I m familiar with.

    11. I found this a very helpful book on characters, setting and explaining the differences with points of view I wish I had read this book earlier as I could have saved myself a lot of hassle with re writes Now that I ve read it, I will be working through the exercises within the book to improve my own writing Highly recommended.

    12. Excellent reference book for fiction writers Most first time novelists don t realise how important viewpoint is And characters Everyone starts writing a novel without knowing who the baddie is that s why they can t finish it.Great book Highly recommended.

    13. Even though some of the things in here were already known to me this was still a big help Love the exercises
