    Some motivating words

    I didn't find too much new here but I found it motivating to realize that so many others feel much the same as I do and confront the same challenges.

    I do not recommend

    Perhaps I've read too many writing books in my time but I felt the advice was mostly a waste, with nothing at all on word craft. To make matters worse the advice she did impart was repeated ad nauseum. Truly, what she had to say should have been clear to a sixth grader without repetitions. I guess it was the only way to make it long enough to be called a book. Way too much wordage for the one or two semi-helpful hints.
