I hate this guy. He's an illusions smasher/master
Would you consider the audio edition of Sizzling Style to be better than the print version?
Bernhardt's spellbinding voice enlivens his masterful lessons for writers, and makes up for the sins of Language arts teachers every where.
What did you like best about this story?
I said I hate this guy. Because, each new Red Sneaker Series book that I read smashes the illusions I have as a writer, but it hones my writing. I have spent the past year reading How to books on novel writing only to pick up some bad habits, and cluttered confusion on the craft. Bernhardt's natural teaching style instructs, and empowers the developing writer's unique individual talent.
What about William Bernhardt’s performance did you like?
I have been able to understand the landscape of creative writing and many tools of the craft, the where in the geography, more important, when to employ the useful information I've gotten from the RSS other writers.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
When I realized that clarity is more important than fad, and sadly, that quick read sells faster than the verbose rookie stuff I currently write. Bernhardt's mentorship is priceless.
Any additional comments?
Now and again in history a cluster of genius appears, France's Impressionist, The Bauhaus and Italy's Renaissance. There is a cluster forming of writers in of all places Oklahoma. I wondered; What are they feeding these up and coming, and established writers. Well, I think they are learning craft from William Bernhardt.

One of the excellent attributes about the Red Sneaker series is the ease that all level of writers and critics will absorb the advice -- everyone will get something of their own out of this work. This collection is outstanding for becoming a better writer, in addition the collection is invaluable in helping critique novels you read/listen. In sizzling style, Bernhardt spends minutes identifying guidelines. This book is about how to eliminate the unwanted, sharpen, convince and convey. This is not a book about adjectives and jacking your writing using steroids. Ooops, violated a rule, "don't say what is not, shay what it is." As the author always says, there are no rules to writing -- but some come close. Take this advice to heart.
