My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was such a fun read. It’s geared towards young writers, but I found that the advice was incredibly solid and absolutely worth reading even for adults. It’s been one of my favorite books on writing (and I’ve read a lot!). I love the specific advice on how to find your voice and write in the style you want to write in. It has practical advice and comforting reminders about learning curves and growth. There are suggestions for finding ideas, expanding thoughts, stylistic choices, and even overcoming writer’s block. I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
