Certainly one for those who think they are going to write the great novel. It tells of the hopes raised & frequently dashed, the sheer frustration & that the main reason for carrying on writing is the need to . Very funny at times & the author does not take himself too seriously- a wise move in the writing world,as it is all based on his personal experience.

This is a dark, yet humourous, take on writing. It made me laugh, cringe and remember my own difficult experiences in attempting to be published. I've never been even close to the 'near misses' that this author has had in his journey of writing, but I could relate to every painful step (and mis-step) in his story. If your a writer, and you want to laugh while you cry about the painful life we've chosen...this is a must read!
I must add, it was a relief to see that this writer couldn't stop writing! I immediately bought another book by this author!
