Described as "a writing workshop in a book," this volume can either be a quick read of seven chapters, or drawn out to study each chapter over a week and dedicate time to the exercises included. It's a very basic writing book, with the focus being on inspiring you to get started. There are guidelines for having hooks in your first sentence, using sensory details, and including emotions so your reader is drawn into the story, but it's more of a starting point than a book to help hone your craft.

This book gives valuable advice and Caroline Joy Adams shows the importance and the power our words have.
I read it because I am stuck with a story that I write. Although I found some great tips, I think this book is perfect for someone who is new to the world of writing.

This is a wonderful took to keep one on focus and moving forward. I found there were many new memories floating to the surface that surprised me. I'm confident thatI will continue to work through some of these thoughts...a great reference in my writing library to pull out when my muse is too quiet. TY you Caroline...(-:
This is the very first book I read on writing. It gave me the confidence to move forward with a passion I could not tame.
