LM Netters-
I have a student who has begun to write a book. She needs help with
formulating different elements, such as setting. I am looking for a
good, inspirational "how to write fiction" book for her. Do any of you
have suggestions?

Also, in her book, she has included the fire-lizards from Anne
McCaffrey's books. They are the same critters, with the same name, so I
know it wouldn't be legal for her to publish a work with them in it, but
what is the copyright law regarding a using the same
character/characters from a book? I'd like to be able to be specific in
explaining the law to her. Thanks for any info you might have!
