Best book on writing. ( )
  Greymowser | Jan 22, 2016 |
This book is okay. It has some very helpful tips on writing novels. It also gave me some ideas for writing a novel one day ( )

I found the author's style quite dry, but the book itself hugely helpful in allowing me as a new writer, to construct something logically. I've since purchased the Weekend Novelist's redrafting one (sorry, forgotten the name until it arrives) because I expect the same help there, now that I've written the first draft. ( )

I wish it was this easy. I have avoided buying this book for YEARS just cause I didn't want to be disappointed when I didn't do it, just like that year I did NANOWRIMO. Maybe this year will be different!! :)
