An easy to read guide that helped me organize my ideas almost from the first page. I couldn't wait to finish reading to get back to writing and apply what I had learned. It also changed MY view of what I read. I began to read like a WRITER, getting an even better grasp of the things Ms. Grant pointed out in her book, noticing exactly what I liked and didn't like from what I was reading, and what I wanted in my book.
