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!Was this review helpful?

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!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
