As a writer I am always looking to improve, which was why I chose to read this book. The writer does an excellent job explaining the mistakes and explaining how to avoid them. He writes, 'Writers are a favorite subject for cartoonists, from Charles Schults of Peanuts fame to those who contribute to the New Yorker. (You can't blame them for picking on writers we are sort of weird.)' Maybe I am a little weird to like to write, as he says, but there is nothing weird about this book. It brings up good points, 38 of them, which I think can only aide a writer. Bickham is the author of over 75 published novels. This book is on my reference shelf, by my desk so I can easily refer to it, to double check if I am making one of the '38 most common fiction writing mistakes. A. D. Tarbox, author of ALREADY ASLEEP
