Easy to understand and well written

This book is designed for authors who are new to writing about grieving characters or who want to use this element of their story more effectively or with more depth.

The book is broken into sections, with each section containing key points and practical exercises you can use to create conflict and build depth in your characters.

It's well structured, easy to understand and there are examples to help you see how you cam apply the exercises to your writing.

Laura did a great job with the narration, it's very smooth and well paced.

This book was supplied free by the author/narrator/publisher and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

Competent writing craft book

Probably a better choice for a pantser than a plotter, but contains enough information to make it worth the listen either way and save on research time and ideas for character's motivations.

Contains a link to the author's website for downloadable materials.

Quick listen if you're commuting.

Got some good ideas from it.
