Seriously... like I said in the title. This is the Jesus of how to's for writing. I may only be 16 but I sure know the difference between something thats, eh okay, and woah, now I know what I'm doing wrong. The activities in this book are fantastic! They really help and the book is an easy read. Plus there's even extra info on whether you need an agent to be an author and extra publishing tips that I never knew about. It's a very insightful book that encourages you to finally stop worrying if your idea's are lame and to just write (basically it tells you to shut it and stop coming up with ridiculous excuses for why you can't write. Only, of course in the nicest way possible. I'd be quite hurt if a book yelled at me). I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who would like to finally capture their creativity and put it to work. Kudos to you for looking into this book even if you don't buy it. It means your on the right track at least. Good luck!
