really liked it

This is a fun, short book that serves as a good shot in the arm for indies out there looking to step up their game. These are not technical tips but motivational ones. The general thrust is to be kind to yourself, to find your voice, to take initiative, write for the love of writing, and place less stock in "expert" advice.

I've been a fan of Buri since reading his short story collection Pieces Like Pottery a few years ago. I'm glad he's written again, although (aside from a few classics) self-help/inspirational isn't my genre. The author does accomplish a witty and entertaining breath of fresh air every writer needs to get writing, and I hope he follows his own advice to someday soon produce another fantastic work of literary fiction.
