The type writer should have been my 1st and only needed clue. However, I thought it was just a writing symbol. Stupid on my part! As soon as I started reading I knew something was extremely wrong. Unless you are a man living in 1979 don't waste your money on this out dated relic!!! This is the only time I wish I could get my money back on a Nook book!

Please, go and buy this book! It is for an ambitious wanna-be writer as good as can be! Not only does Lawrence Block show multiple ways on getting your own novel done - it's also a good thing that he gives examples and pictures of his own writing career with all its trickiness and false trails - but he also encourages you not to lose patience and to do the best you can with what you have. I think he is one of the few who just admit that there is not only one formula for getting it done, but there are definitely a thousand possible paths to find the one that fits YOU. Just figure it out, folks!
