Informative and helpful

I’m going to rate Sarah‘s book with four stars, although I feel as if she could have slowed things down a bit. The information felt rushed, and the narrator was a little too dry for my taste. Overall, I took enough away from this book as a new short story writer where it was worth my time and money. I would recommend this book to anyone that’s new to writing short stories.

Meh

There are small pockets of good info, but overall a bit too general. Based on other books covering this topic, I felt some information to be accidentally misleading. Books by Michael Rogan go much deeper and specific. I apologize to the author for recommending another author.

Great Companion!

I have studied so much about different styles of writing. I found this audible book full of extremely helpful reminders when I want to switch to this writing style. I like the arrangement of the chapters and content, short and directly to the point. Nice touch of humor throughout.🙂
