    Rather than being just another schoolbook, this handbook has a different feel to it. By this, I mean that instead of the pages seeming like assignments, the book is written for students who want to learn how to write - as though they picked up this book themselves because they were interested and are doing it on their own time because they enjoy creative writing. I find it very fresh and appealing. The authors believe that mastering a narrative first will lead to better short stories and poetry and help them to flow more naturally, so the first part of the book focuses on writing a narrative. This is broken up into 3 different chapters, offering students practice in beginning a narrative, developing a narrative, and lastly perfecting a narrative. Each of these chapters follows the same basic steps - pre-writing, exploring, and brainstorming; composing and creating a draft; and finally revising, using sensory and vivid words, working with combining sentences, transitions, beginnings and ends, peer editing (you can do this yourself if there aren't any other students to assist), writing the final draft and then proofreading again. The chapters on short stories and poems follow this same format. For the short story, you'll also work on characterization and the structure specific to a short story. In the poetry chapter, you'll practice with imagery, structure, rhythm, figurative language, ideas, poetic springboards, and other relevant elements of poetry. Throughout all of the chapters, examples from professional and student writers are given for students to analyze and understand what it is about them that is so effective and successful. (This includes excerpts from books by John Steinbeck (The Long Valley) and Harper Lee (To Kill a Mockingbird). Students are also given plenty of opportunities throughout the book for their own writing practice. After reading the example, they are encouraged to try their hand at capturing an audience with a great opener, vivid descriptions, smooth transitions, or whatever skill they are working with. They are also encouraged to keep a writing journal for daily use, and ideas for topics are given to help them get started. The very last chapter in this handbook provides ten guidelines for good writing and additional practice with sentence combining. This handbook could be a very beneficial, enjoyable tool for anyone who is interested in creative writing as a craft. - Melissa
