Couldn't put this down!
One of the best books on writing with such an honest, open, and often humorous back story of Probst writing career. From her failures to success. Do's and dont's. And more do's and dont's.
So many eye opening subjects that had me reading chapters again, writing down major points and even getting a highlighter out.
While keeping things on a serious, business tone throughout the book she is able to hit every topic an aspiring author, or a veteran author would have. While also telling laugh out loud moments in her career, to truthful breakbacking, hard to "write the words" moments.
I can't recommend this book enough!
Great quotes! Many tips! And a love for writing that was found at a very early age!
Thank you Jennifer Probst! May the words always be with you!
