Not the Worst, but Not the Best

Lazar offers really good advice on eschewing dialogue tags (avoid like the plague!) in favor of beats, and... that's it! Nice bits on life lessons such as: Enjoy the little things (you know, in case you've never heard that before), but mostly reads excerpts from his own written works.
I must say, I'm glad I'm done with all three volumes. I'm actually prepared and happy to stop procrastinating and do what I was supposed to be doing. Which was starting on my second book.
At the time, it seemed like listening to something about writing would be easier than writing. Happily, I was wrong.
And I will, indeed, take one piece of advice Mr. Lazar suggested: I'll (try to) Write Like the Wind...!

Excellent

An interesting look at a known author the insight into how they feel when a book or even a series is complete. Gives one a behind look at what makes an author and his books sell. Enjoyed the audio when one could take notes as they wanted. The narration by Kuch was good. A good three part series. Given audio for my voluntary review and my honest opinion
