Not Recommended

I do have something positive to say, but let me explain the one star first.

Much of the advice given, I feel would cause injury and harm to budding new writers, and I can’t recommend the advice in this book, nor can I support many of this author’s suggestions,

One thing I do agree with and believe the author is spot on about, because I’ve seen it happen to me: We often use an excuse of outlining, planning, doing extensive and detailed character sheets and story maps on plot to justify or cover up the reason we’re not writing.

It’s a genesis each new writer has to go through—letting go of your fear and finishing the novel.

The author identifies this correctly and reasons with you to attack that fear.

Listen, it’s your story in your head, and regardless of genre, you’re the only one who can write it down as a novel.

You don’t need this book to do that, but you do need not to give up.

Let’s face it—words are practically free.

Yes, you may have a chaotic, busy lifestyle, but if you are really a writer you will find a way to do it, and make the time.

No one has to be told they are a writer. You either do it or you don’t. You either succeed at it or fail,

It’s up to you.

No book, including this one, is going to change that for you.

Worth the Listen

LaRonn gets right to the pony and gives helpful advice about writing tool as. I appreciate his take on pantsing vs plotting (he’s a fan of pantsing).
