At last... a book about writing for writers, by someone who is a writer and understands the writing process. This is now my favourite book about writing. A lot of the other writing books, especially the screen writing books seem to be more for producers or possibly commissioners who are scared of the writing process and don't trust it. Lisa Goldman understands that to write anything interesting you have to tap into your subconscious and trust that something interesting will happen. In addition there are lots of really inspiring quotes from established writers and some great tips and exercises. It is easy to read, helpful and encouraging. Better than any of those expensive writing courses.
