Wonderbook

Wonderbook: The Illustrated Guide to Creating Imaginative FictionWonderbook: The Illustrated Guide to Creating Imaginative Fiction by Jeff VanderMeer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a book not to devour in one sitting. Took me some time, but I was able to work through it and absorb the massive amount of information, insight and experience provided on writing imaginative fiction. Some of it was comforting as I was on the right path without being told to do so, while much of it was extremely helpful in developing my own writing, especially on revising and first chapters. In fact, it inspired me to completely dismantle and rewrite my first chapter, eliminate my bulky prologue and I could not be more pleased with the results. I am sure this a book I am going to return to for reminders and motivation.
