5***** Review on Amazon
Short with great points to consider if you think you have a story or more in you waiting to be written. The brevity is actually a strength because I would never read a long book about writing. Within pages of beginning this how-to book, I was actually considering a few ideas for using my life travels in some form to create a novel.
Many of the points are made with examples from the author’s own experience. I find her books very readable, so, her tips helped me visualize a similar transformation of certain facets of my life into a story others might want to read.
