Started out great but fizzled toward the end
Maisel has some wonderful advice for dealing with the fear of writing and how to create conducive writing space - both emotional and physical. But as the book continued, I felt like his advice got more simplistic. Some chapters even felt like filler.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Great Little Book for Writers
It's a quaint book, small in size, and perfect to carry around with you if you're so inclined. Ideal for writers seeking new ways to find that perfect writing space, whether that space is mentally or physically. That's really all there is to it, but who knows? It may just remind you of that perfect spot that you used to have and since forgotten about. I used to write all the time the moment I woke up, right in bed. My bed was one of my prime writing spots and for some reason, I forgot about it. Upon reading this book, I rediscovered the glory of writing while tucked into my sheets, a lapdesk supporting my notebook and a pencil in my hand. It's hard to go wrong when the book is written by a man who swims in creativity and its processes - and when he encourages eating brownies.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Review of the Preview Function
My apologies to those expecting a review of the book; from the formal synopsis, it sounds like a book I want to try. I am writing here of the preview function ("See Inside") and to B&N: why would you offer the preview link, then show a book where every single page is labeled "Publisher has not made this page available?" Why not just not include the preview option? Disappointing and, unfortunately, not the first time.
