it was ok
bookshelves: non-fic, 2012

I feel like I should go sit in the Naughty Chair by giving it two stars when there are pages of four & five star reviews. It wasn't a bad book, but it was - truthfully - just okay for me. It was mostly zippy fluff and the advice felt a little... calculated.

I quite liked this though: "Write the kind of story you like best - write the story you want to read. The same principle applies to your life and your career: Whenever you're at loss for what move to make next, just ask yourself, "What would make a better story?"

Cassie That is a great thought.

Your response is how I often feel about these sorts of books.
