    I received this e-book through the Goodreads Giveaway program. This book is a brief, direct way to jumpstart your short story writing in ten days. Though I am not a fiction writer and have concentrated on non-fiction in the past, I actually stood up from my chair as I was reading "Day 1: Meet Your Protagonist" and got a notebook and a pen so I could try the exercise.

This book is a brief, direct way to jumpstart your short story writing in ten days. Though I am not a fiction writer and have concentrated on non-fiction in the past, I actually stood up from my chair as I was reading "Day 1: Meet Your Protagonist" and got a notebook and a pen so I could try the exercise. I have always thought that I could never write fiction (and have ended up with thinly disguised truth when I tried), so I was a little startled to find that I was able to develop a picture of a protagonist rather quickly. The exercises are pretty painless - minimal time is required to perform them, and only a short introduction appears before each exercise. If you're bogged down by how to begin a story or feel overwhelmed by a need to research how to write instead of actually writing, this is a terrific little book to just get you writing. The section on editing is too short to get you to a publishable story, but the focus of this book seems to be more on producing a story that you can then polish on your own (or with the help of other resources). I finished reading the book without trying all the exercises but I plan on trying them later because now I'm a little curious to discover what happens next with my hero... This book is great at making you excited about the idea of creating, so I'd recommend it for people who have started feeling like writing is homework.
