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.

Helpful, more so for UK listeners

This book has a lot of helpful tips for beginners to story craft. While some of the information is UK specific like names of contests or publisher names there is still lots to take away from this guide to write your story.

Rosemary and Patsy write conversationally and the narrator does well in carrying that on to the listener and makes it a quick and easy listen.
