Just what I needed to boost my confidence and my story writing
on 26 November 2012
This little toolkit is just what I needed. I have a couple of stories on the go and several others at the structure stage. I needed some professional advice to keep me on the right track so that my output is high quality, varied and interesting. And my goal is to get ONE story published as a way to keep up my morale. I feel more able to achieve that first goal after studying Della's slim book.
Della offers no-nonsense tips and advice, provides plenty of examples to back up what she is saying, and encourages us to keep on writing and keep on submitting our work. She also takes a systematic and consistent approach to the art of writing and editing a short story. I shall adopt her technique and keep plugging away, and i know I will refer back regularly to the advice and ideas in this little volume. Worth its weight in gold.
