This book consists of advice for new writers, but also has accounts of the up and down sides of the writing life.
I enjoyed the sections on drafts, revisions, and character development. However too much of the humor was repetitive
and banal (how many times do we have to hear about hating people who disagree with you and the like?) Other than
that and OK book with a few things I will remember if I ever take up writing seriously.
