5.0 out of 5 stars Save your money--Buy this book!, November 7, 2010

This review is from: Screenwriting Tricks For Authors (and Screenwriters!) (Kindle Edition)
I think it was Blake Snyder in his book, Save the Cat, that said writers will do anything to keep from working--from writing--the single activity they love most in the world. He was right, of course, and one of the things writers do to procrastinate is buy books on writing. This is the perfect outlet, as the primary reason we don't want to write is because the editor in our heads keeps telling us we're just not good enough.

Me, yes, I'm a writer, and as such, I am a procrastinator and collector of fine books on writing. Honestly, there is no book on the subject, in print or out, that I do not own.

And just as Blake Snyder said his book was the last book on screen writing anyone would ever need, Sokoloff's Screen-writing Tricks for Authors is the last book on novel writing you'll ever need. She has condensed the best of the best--at least the most relevant to today's audience--into a no-word-wasted just-the-facts-maam book that no serious writer should be without.

If you buy another book on writing without reading this one first, you'll be wasting money.
