While Aaron’s background is in fiction writing, and her focus in the book often is about plotting and other story concerns that relate to fiction, many of her tips and suggestions will work for any sort of writing. She’s very encouraging and inspiring, and I appreciated her straightforward approach.
Her ideas are also very doable, and the specific examples from her experience developing her method shows how it can work. Her approach really resonated with me and I loved reading her examples so much that I went looking for her fiction books.
My only complaint with it is that there are a fair number of typos and misspellings. It’s such a well-done book otherwise that I was surprised to find them. Don’t let that put you off from reading it, just be aware that they are there, and it’s disappointing.
I grabbed this when it was offered for free from Amazon, but that promotion has ended. It’s back to the usual price of $.99, and it’s easily worth that.
