    "So so endid beter than it started.."
    If you could sum up Writing Magic in three words, what would they be?

    The beginning of the book is not written to be read out loud(I had a hard time staying a wake, I felt thirteen a gain trying to stay a wake in class!), though it gets better in the end with the interweave/commenting the writers experience... I like that sort of stuff.


    Would you recommend Writing Magic to your friends? Why or why not?

    It is a book a bout writing and all books a bout writing have something to inspire, yes off-course id recommend it.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    it sounded better in the end so I don't think it was her fault, like I said "The beginning of the book is not written to be read out loud(I had a hard time staying a wake, I felt thirteen a gain trying to stay a wake in class!)"


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Writing Magic?

    these kind of books are always a little motivators, but needs more motivation in the beginning to get you through it.
