A Few Tidbits of Advice on Writing From The Author:

"'Great writers are great readers.' You need to keep your muse well fed. Read a lot, including nonfiction. Read about places you have never been or cultures you are unfamiliar with, you never know what types of ideas it will spark. You don’t have to write only what you already “know” about."

"Don’t worry about making things perfect the first time out, just get your story down on paper and then go back and make it perfect. So many writers try to re-write before getting the first draft down, which only stops the creative process. There are a thousand ways to write every scene! Just pick one and get that first draft done." — Victoria Lynn Schmidt

Book in a month Review by Margot Raine

I think as a motivational tool this book is great. But there is so much paperwork, I would spend so much time keeping and reading the paperwork. Yet, I can see it will help to at least get it down. I just don't know that I would keep up with the paperwork. I'm a great user of tracker on my computer after I have edited my work from hard copy and I think that works just fine.
