Meh.
Technically, I didn't finish this book because I didn't read the whole thing. I ordered the book without really knowing what was in it.

Personally, I enjoy being inspired to write by books that talk about plot, structure, POV, etc. in depth. But I just want to read and be inspired. I don't want to read a ton of writing examples and do a bunch of writing exercises. About half of this book is writing examples and exercises.

I did find what she had to say about writing craft sound and helpful; there were a couple of important insights I will remember. But there just wasn't enough here for me since I skipped all the examples and exercises...
