Hemingway versus EL James?. If you aspire to the former and not the latter, then this book is for you; but be warned this is no foray into easy territory; you will be called upon to jettison every lazy mindless habit of poor technique you've ever assimilated or learned. Simultaneously you will be asked to dig deep into the all of everything that you think you do not know. In that respect this book is quite confronting, but for those that want to improve, then it is definitely a call to rise and meet the challenge and grow within the craft; other than Mckee and Egri, it is probably one of the best books on writing I've read so far. Thank you Mr Smailes. Simple, invaluable and most impressively - free.
