Sally writes from the experience of a published writer. But she hasn't forgotten how hard it is for a new writer to make that first step. Each article subtly informs without patronising.
From sourcing ideas to making time to write, Sally covers it all. Articles include quotes from other writers, all sharing their experiences that offer the unpublished writer a glimmer of hope.
Both fiction and non-fiction are covered, but much of the advice is universal. If you've yet to be published, then this is an excellent collection to inspire. And for the published writer? Some excellent tips to keep you on track and focused.
Why not five stars? I felt it was a bit of a pot-pourri and, as she readily explains herself, brings together articles she's had published at different times in writing magazines. That made it feel a bit disjointed, but it's nonetheless a useful and worthwhile book, and very easy to read and digest. Definitely worth the very reasonable purchase price.
The style is conversational and easy to read and the examples provided exemplify the points made clearly.
There were a couple of chapters that I skimmed over - not being a non-fiction writer - but the advice provided is sensible, realistic and suitable for those individuals who have always wondered if they could be a writer, but are hesitant to know where to begin.
I would certainly recommend this to any new writers out there. Clear, concise and can be read in one sitting so as not to take up too much valuable writing time.
