    Jack Smith has really nailed it with this one! Write and Revise

    Jack Smith has really nailed it with this one! Write and Revise is an excellent resource for writers of all levels... as a creative writing professor, I can easily imagine using this text in the classroom. He begins with a succinct overview of the "production stage" and briefly describes the primary elements and techniques of fiction, including clear descriptions and tips for developing characters, choosing the best point of view, establishing conflict, managing plot and structure, and developing setting, style, tone and mood. The majority of the book, however, focuses on the revision process, one of the most crucial steps to crafting successful fiction. As he notes, "Solid revision transforms unfinished work by giving it levels or depths it didn't have before, smoothing it out, and producing a polished product." The remaining chapters are categorized by the element of fiction one may need to concentrate on during the revision stage, including openings and endings, developing themes, and fine tuning your manuscript. This book is concise but comprehensive, making it an excellent addition to any writers' shelf. I'm looking forward to using it in the classroom and for my own personal revision projects.
