"Your Book Starts Here" offers unparalleled guidance on: building a writing practice; brainstorming content; writing scene-based islands; storyboarding within a three-act structure; stifling the inner critic; developing characters and setting; incorporating sensory details; exploring theme and so much more!
I credit "Your Book Starts Here" and the workshops and online classes I've taken with Mary for providing the inspiration, insight and supportive writing community I needed to propel me on my book-writing journey. Working through a chapter from Mary's book each week, I have discovered my writing voice and experienced a profound transformation in the quality of my writing. As a result, I'm well on my way to completing a first draft.
I highly recommend "Your Book Starts Here" for anyone who has always wanted to write a book - and those who want to raise the bar on their current or future book projects.
I have many writing books littering my shelves. This is one of the best.
