I'm using this book to help me write a draft of my first novel. Excellent "coaching" tips for actually getting pages written. Very much like having a writing professor with you. Unusually funny at times, too; you don't expect that in an instructional book. Makes the work more enjoyable. Highly recommend. Good luck with your writing!

If you are truly, really serious about trying to get a novel written, this is THE no-excuses book for that effort. Domet is a writing professor and it shows - you will find yourself coached, coaxed, and humored into keeping with it. She even gives you help with explaining to family members or spouses why you need time to work on your writing. Love it.

Every once in a while I like to indulge in novels that talk about writing. Of course, as an aspiring writer I know that reading novels about writing doesn't make you a writer...writing makes you a writer. As a plotter, I was anxious to read this novel, and I didn't mind paying the $9.99 for it. Instead of following along with novel, and stopping to complete the exercises, I read the novel straight through. There were a few tips and exercises I found handy, but overall I didn't really enjoy this novel like I thought I would. It was okay, but if you're a writer who already have an idea of what you want your novels to be about, then this novel is probably not for you. The first few weeks were trying to come up with ideas, when I was hoping for more of a book about outlining.

Domet analyzes tecniques used in classic novels, she explains the formula and teaches you how you can apply it to your own novel. Very enjoyable. I recomend this to everyone.
