Who would have thought you could write a semi-memoir about writing and narrative structure, and make it a page-turner? Steven Pressfield clearly did, because that is exactly what this short book is, and is also about.

I really enjoyed reading this, and I think I learned something too. I think there is a pitch buried in here too, but I don't begrudge Pressfield and Shawn Coyne [his editor] that, since they gave this work away for free. Hell, I think their pitch worked, I'm actually interested. Well done guys. ( )

Pretty good stuff, as usual, from Steven Pressfield. It pretty much does pick up where The War of Art leaves off and provides that little bit of a kick in the pants you might need to get going and write... it'll help you if you're wandering a bit aimlessly, like a cloud, and suddenly you'll have your villain, the sun, and your Inciting Incident, maybe a stiff breeze off the Atlantic, shuffle it all into three acts and you'll have your story.
He's got a great, no nonsense voice and the years of experience to back it up. And whether you cut his book up and post it all over your writing room wall and adhere to his principles or if you just absorb a bit of it through osmosis it's certainly not going to hurt your craft too much (other than the fact that you're reading about writing rather than just getting out there and doing it -- but we all need breaks sometimes).
