's review

it was amazing

Most books on writing, in my experience, try to tame or rationalize the chaos inherent in the creative process. This results in insecurity for writers who cannot replicate a mechanistic, factory-generated narrative on deadline. Wonderbook, however, does not shy away from exploring the creative impulse and synthesizing the Dionysian and Apollonian energies fundamental to authentic creativity. I feel like I've attended a creative writing workshop by the time I finished reading it. Hats off the Jeff VanderMeer and Wonderbook's many collaborators!
