Recommends it for: would-be writers who'd like a little help to get started (again).
As a writer with a bad case of writer's block I have been looking for several ways to deal with it. I thought that book might help, and the description of Your Writing Coach sounded the most interesting, so I bought the book. When I read it, I got pleasantly surprised. Jurgen brings up topics I didn't expect, such as the fears that can stop you from writing and how to keep going. I knew about some of the fears, but I didn't know they could be a reason to the block. I also learned a lot from the...more
Jurgen Wolff has created a wonderfully different type of book for aspiring writers that seems to stem from his own successes in writing and coaching writers. Once other books have instructed you on the basics of grammar, story composition and dialogie let Jurgen take your writer brain in a new direction. This book includes great chapters about how to talk to loved ones whose negativity is dragging you down, how to visualize your inner critic as a helpful partner instead of a roadblock and how to...more

I can't remember a time when I didn't want to be a writer. This book offered some helpful tips and guidelines to help me get started on writing. Before reading this, I have had a couple of ideas in the back of my mind, being a little afraid to put them down on paper in case of rejection but the book helped my confidence and shows how to plan your novel as well as providing some encouraging points about famous authors that you would have never have thought had problems getting their work publishe...more

Overall I did like the book. Of course, a book of this kind will always have parts which are useless to someone. I had my share of useless chapters but I got loads of juice from other chapters. The prose of Jurgen Wolff is pleasant and light, easy to follow, addictive, to a point. A happy reader here.

This book has very specific ideas about how to help a writer. I love the online additions and guided imagery. There are some very good tips here on how to deal with practical issues a writer faces daily.
From the moment I opened up this book, I started to love it. It is exactly what I have been looking for. And I am sure I will enjoy the ride.
The book in general is quite all right, offering some useful tips. However, it is more catered towards screenwriting than fiction writing.

I think I've read one too many writing books, because this one didn't offer anything new or special for me.
Carol Hislop
