    This is the perfect desktop companion for any aspiring writer. It covers all the basic of the writing process--what every book should have... plot, structure, etc.-- as well as the basic mechanics of writing fiction and dialog. Too many books get published with silly mistakes that should not happen. That is just a travesty to both authors and editors. English is not an easy language, but it has rules, and they are there for a reason! Keep writing fun by knowing what to do with at your fingertip g This is the perfect desktop companion for any aspiring writer.
