User Review  - Stephanie - Goodreads

I didn't enjoy this quite as much as some other writing books, but there's some useful stuff in here. Lots about the importance of writing practice, of turning up to the page, even on bad days. Some good insights into some of the frailties of being a writer, too. Read full review

User Review  - Fayette - Goodreads

This book makes me want to quit my job and write full-time. Any book that makes you want to change your life, or at least examine it, is a good one.

User Review  - Michelle - Goodreads

I couldn't get into this book as much as Writing Down the Bones, or Wild Mind. I require much more around writing a novel, structure-wise, than provided here, and found the drifting off to Goldberg's love of American Southern writers just too local for me. Read full review
