Clearly laid out instructions pave the way for writing everything from your travel stories, personal memories, family secrets, research, to publishing, self-publishing and even blogging. There are lots of prompts and exercises to keep you writing and motivated to stick with it.
I particularly like the format. At the beginning of each chapter you are told
what you will be learning. Next, the book goes through this in detail then
at the end of the chapter it is summed up in point form. (Just in case you
weren’t paying attention!) That makes it easy to go back and find something you might need to re-read.
Potential problems are identified with bold “POT HOLE AHEAD” warnings. Tips are given for getting past any sticking points or trouble. It’s not always
“smooth sailing” in the writing world so I found this extremely helpful.
This guide is user friendly and very readable. There are many examples of famous writers and how they handled certain aspects of their writing making it feel like we “budding authors" face the same challenges as “the pros”….
Rather than being a complete idiot to read this, you would be very wise indeed forgiving this a go.
Disclosure: Patricia received a copy of the book for the purpose of review.
