This is another pamphlet book logging in at about 37 pages The author is up front about that though and the 149 price isn t out of line When I first saw the title I was intrigued since it seems to take a stance completely opposite what the writing community accepts as proper I decided to read it to see what this maverick author was really advocatingAs it turned out there really isn t any crazy Mirror Universe philosophy here It s of a different taking on outlining Write your book but when you get to a scene that s going to take a lot of fiddling rather than get bogged down in the details list some pertinent eventsitems and then plow on with the rest of the story Go back and fill in the blanks after the book is completeSome examples are included hence the necessity for than a couple of pages I could see this being a useful tool especially if you find yourself stuck in a particularly difficult scene maybe a long complex fight scene and you re so frustrated that you re at risk of tossing the whole thing asideI m giving this book three stars for having a decent idea It s only one idea though and doesn t really live up to the title This isn t about a different style of writing this is about how to get from Point A to Point B without drowning in a uagmire of description along the way You DO have to go back and fix all those tells eventually you re just putting that task off for a while
