When it comes to reading books on how to write, I'm biased and totally unconcerned about being objective and realistic. That being said, this is a great book and a fun read. :) It encourages and gives great advice. I've never read one of her books, but I'm perfectly willing to try a few, based on the quality of her writing about writing. It's a good sign that she can tug my emotional authorial apron strings like this. Of course, what I really want to see is the complete novel she wrote in a single month. Perhaps it's a stinker, perhaps I'm going to give it a great deal of that proverbial benefit of the doubt because of the extreme pressure she was put under. Still, it's an interesting little mind game I'm going to lay on my psyche. Thank you Holly!
