One piece of advice I did take on fully: Mr Wendig says that advice on writing is dependent on you. Good advice is good if it works for you. The style of writing Mr Wendig proposes, however, is his style of writing, not mine. The best advice I can give is to not read this book, because you will have heard all of it before. However, your mileage may vary; no advice is good advice, after all.
In essence, it’s a refresher guide: a quick, funny reminder of all the writing techniques and tips you probably already know. If you’re a beginner, however, it might not be the best teaching tool—but it’s worth a read anyway.
Unless you’re easily offended.
Then—stay away. Stay far, far away.
The appeal of this book is that it's all in bitesize parcels instead of being in one large tome. Perfect for someone with an interest in writing and the attention span of a weasel on crystal meth, like myself. He's also fond of swearing, which is refreshing, in an inverse kind of way. This is the type of book that someone who writes themselves can refer back to easily, whereas a lot of the self-help style writing guides are often rarely re-opened after that first reading.
Highly recommended if you're looking for writing guidance that's akin to being harangued by a drunken novelist who's reading over your shoulder.
Overall, this has been a great book giving me some incredible insight, well worth the time to read.

The book was concise, funny and easy to read, it avoided too much detail, I wouldn't use it as a reference guide or a bible to writing, but it's worth reading at least once.Published on 10 Jun. 2012 by Greynolds
