I hope the book is better

Freeing the Writer Within might have been a good book, but this tape is not very helpful for anyone wanting to start writing. There might be 15 minutes of substantive information and the rest is listenting the class read their writings. There is even a several minute pause while the author has the students complete an exercise. I was very disappointed.

disappointing

The quality of the recording is very poor, and I think almost any other of Natalie's books would be more illuminating.
