    "A lot like an interview"
    If you could sum up From Story Idea to Reader in three words, what would they be?

    Helpful for beginners

    Any additional comments?

    I found this to be helpful in looking at the everyday world as a source of inspiration.

    The text seems to read more like an interview you would see in a magazine or newspaper. At first it was a little hard to follow until I realized this. After that the information was very good.

    I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

    "Good Advice for Writers"

    I found this to be full of easy-to-follow advice and exercises. I especially thought the exercises were what made the whole thing worth the listen and creditworthy. I do feel like parts of it would have been better in print, but having a notebook handy while listening would optimal to get the most out of this listen.

    I imagine it's hard to put together any kind of instructional that can appeal to a wide range of people without condescending to some and going over the heads of others. I thought a couple spots were a bit tedious, or "Let me explain this very common sense idea to you using small words." However, it wasn't enough to make me not recommend the book overall. I think this can be very helpful to someone who is considering trying their hand at writing.

    The narration is clear and read well. It is very much a reading rather than a performance as it is a "how-to" which is obviously written by 2 women and read by one man. However, there is nothing lost in the conversion from print to audio, and CW Hall did a great job.

    I received this audiobook at my request in exchange for an UNBIASED review.

    "The Title Is Confusing But The Content Is Not"

    ✍️ The title is a bit confusing to me but I found this book to be an encyclopedia for a writer.

    Some of the highlights:
    1. Short, focused ;chapters
    2. Summary and exercises at the end of each chapter
    3. Glossary

    I found that speeding up the audio made the narration better.

    This is the 3rd or 4th book that I have listened to about writing and/or audiobook creation in the past 4 or 5 months. I think it is helpful and may be inspiring for those who are considering writing a book.

    I recommend listening to this with a pen and notebook (or the electronic version) in hand to jot down notes.
