Rating: 4/5 Stars
This book was a quick read with a lot of really great information that was delivered in an entertaining way. Though I consider myself to be a somewhat seasoned writer, I found myself learning quite a few things from this book, from editing tips to information about the publishing industry. It was also incredibly inspiring, urging writers to keep working toward their dreams and to ignore their inner “bully.” Though there was nothing necessarily new revealed in this book, all of the information was presented in a unique way that I believe would be incredibly beneficial to an amateur writer.
I would absolutely recommend this book to any aspiring authors looking to learn a bit more about what it’s like to be a writer professionally, or who may be second-guessing their abilities. Lafferty’s writing is witty, charming, and all-around fun to read.
