it was amazing
bookshelves: writing-books, non-fiction

I received a PDF for Steven Pressfield’s “Nobody wants to read your ...” as part of the launch marketing, and almost put it down immediately. It’s written like a cross between a journal and a James Patterson book (long chapters are 2-3 pages, many are as brief as a couple of lines), and written with a brain-dump kind of style that initially appears random and unconnected. When I read self-help books, particularly writing books, I make notes of the interesting points, and it wasn’t long before I realised I was writing more notes from this book than I have on many other recent reads. And after a while, those random chapters start to join up - they tell the story of Steven’s journey, the mistakes he made and the strategies he used to overcome them. His advice covers all forms of writing: fiction, non-fiction, even scripts for porn films. An enjoyable read, recommended.
