it was amazing
bookshelves: writing, knowledge

This book is so excellent that it inspired me to write my first story since school and that's a whole lot of literary constipation! Alex Quick (or should I say Gary Dexter?) deserves to be rich and famous beyond all measure; unless of course he doesn't want to be.

The book does not really give '102 Ways to Write a Novel' but it does give 102 wonderful pieces of advice on the various aspects of how to write a novel, all of which are useful and actionable and.. I wonder if I'm really a psychopath with a lack of capacity to feel compassion for those around me.
