Part how-to, part "This is how I do it" by the successful author of 22 books, WRITE AWAY is an interesting look at how George works (she does more work than before actually beginning to write than any author I know). Beginning writers could also get the basics (different points of view, how to hook readers, how to flesh out characters). George's "Examples and Guides" at the end of the book include her list of THADS (Talking Head Avoidance Devices), possible story structures (such as the seven-step story line and hero's journey) and a Character Prompt Sheet.
