The book provides practical examples of how to make your writing clearer and stronger. It covers plotting, use and abuse of words, common traps to avoid, and some very well chosen practical exercises. The reader will have to put this book down and work on their writing if they're going to be the best they can be, but you'll quickly be picking the book up again once you've finished the exercises. You'll learn through doing.
The book could use a few more examples of before and after texts, but it remains a very clear guide to how to improve a first draft. Strongly recommended.
One tip, it may be worth buying the hard copy of this book rather than the ebook version. You will find yourself flipping backwards and forwards to check things, and that's easier with a physical version.
Now, as a writer myself, I take the art of writing seriously. But there comes a point where you need to ask questions, this book "TELL ME A STORY" ticks all those boxes.
What I loved about this book is how easy it was to understand. I've read a lot "on writing" and have to admit to have skipped a few of the other authors work due to the technical side, overwhelming the need for information. I feel E.J Runyon has accomplished this with this excellent book. I read it while tucked up in bed, after a hard days writing. What I found was EJ's ability to get past the "mumbo jumbo" (To fill out the pages) and tell it to you straight, as if you were having a coffee with a friend.
I stand by my five stars when I say "TELL ME A STORY" is a great book for the writer who takes their work seriously!
EJ's advice for writers of all levels is second to none. The book is very easy to understand and is structured easily so that you can find the part, which would help you, the most.
Whichever level you're at. Novice or Pro, this is a great addition to your collection.
Working with EJ has taken my novel to the next level. I will continue working with her now and in the future.
This book is really worth buying. I highly recommend it.
