Love this book!

I really love this book, mainly because I want to be an author as well. This book talks about all types of important things to know when writing. For example: building a world, creating characters that feel real, doing rough drags, how to find your process, making the perfect plot and more! Even if you don’t like writing or don’t want to be an author, this is still an interesting book. ALSO, lost of different authors in this book explain their writing process, or how they build characters, worlds, and plots.
