5.0 out of 5 stars Practical Novel Writing 10 Aug 2008
By J.H.
This book helps you to believe in yourself as a writer. If, like me, you tend to feel you're no good at a certain aspect of writing (detailed descriptions in my case) this book will show you that you don't have to be. I want to get on with the story rather than tell the reader how many dents there were in the nearside rear door of Charlie's 'B' registered Volvo etc. Every writer is unique, or should want to be. After reading this book you'll be fired with new confidence and enthusiasm; I was anyway. Well done, Dilys Gater, and thanks.
