After reading many of Elizabeth Berg's novels, it seemed natural to read about her experience and process of writing.

At the halfway mark the time of this review post, I am likely to read this book again, immediately after completing it the first go'round. Immensely helpful and loaded with personal wisdom and guidance, Berg's writing voice feels as if she is speaking directly to me, you, the reader.

I have done, and am doing, some of the homework, especially the large journal she asks the reader to purchase, keep, and use regularly. This has been especially helpful, as will, I imagine,the rest of this beautifully, helpful book.

Thank you, Elizabeth Berg! I would like to be as good a writer as you, and as well-loved and published someday!
