5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful
This is super helpful and a must for any young writer. See especially the advice by M.J Hyland. Very good stuff indeed.

If you are completely uninspired and willing to follow the tips of 10 or 15 disparate and modestly successful writers slavishly to complete your own book, buy this. It is basically a but of a ramble from some guardian hacks and friends of guardian hacks about how they wrote their books.

The only good bit is a small section on self-publishing by someone who had success that way – but it works for almost no-one. Much better to get an agent and a publisher or just self publish on Kindle, not physical books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Writer's review, April 14, 2012

This review is from: How to write fiction: A Guardian masterclass (Guardian Shorts) (Kindle Edition)
As a writer of various types of text, I found this book to be delightful. It has a wide selection of very relevant chapters, all of which contain succinct advice and commentary on different aspects of the writer's craft. The book is like a smorgasbord - you can eat from as many dishes as you like at one sitting and go up for seconds regularly. It's a great dip in and out of book.
