I have been working on a book for a while now and had lost most of my motivation to continue. Listening to this (in the mornings during my commute) has encouraged me to get back on track.
I love Janet's books and now having the insight into her thought processes enhances the experience even that much more !

Great tips, Great examples

I've never read or listened to any of Janet's books, and this was nonetheless a great listen. She weaves her own reflections with those of her agent (I think) and her daughter, who manages her website, to discuss not only writing, but publishing, and issues around both. She includes samples of her writing to illustrate what she's talking about. So while I'm sure the Janet fans enjoyed this, any aspiring writer will too. ...And if you like this, you'll love Stephen King's book, On Writing, too.
