Do wonder why so many short stories have a vague or slight theme; if a short story has to have an internal shift in a character; what the difference is between a short story and novel besides word count?

Do you write sketches and wonder why they're not short stories? Do you want some good advice that isn't formula, nor abstract opinion?

This book is easy to read, is beautifully written, and is funny, urbane, and humble.

I own thirty plus writing books and by far Rust Hill's book "Writing in General and the Short Story in Particular" would be the writing book I would be stranded with on a desert island.

He breaks down every part of a story in small sections that really helps the reader understand the topic of writing. You will come out of reading this book and feeling like you know all the major concepts and will be able to apply them to your work of fiction.

Hands down, this is the best book on writing. I have used it time and time again to refresh the concepts of fiction. I highly recommend this book to everyone who writes fiction, especially short fiction.

To amazon, please put this on the kindle!

This made me take another look at short stories, both reading and writing them. I feel like I understand them a lot better and it is a critical resource for those of us trying to write them.

I bought this book after having borrowed it from the college library. I wanted to be able to keep it handy, because it's much more concise and clear than other books that promise the same thing. The author doesn't spend much time on theory, but rather gets down to the bare bones, wich is really helpful when you've read many similar titles.

Purchase this as a quick read but also as a reference book. The bullet points and reminders are useful to go over when editing.

The writer is a bit “uppity” but the advice is fantastic.

I'm not an aspiring writer, but I often read things like this to become a better reader. The author's observations are so spot on in addressing what I like to see in a story, and also what I don't like to see. He mentions many passages in literature that I've always marveled at (and enjoyed). As an avid reader, possibly taking some time to learn about the craft will enhance your understanding and appreciation of the writer's task at hand. Thought it well worth the time...
