Janice Hardy has a knack for explaining what is often said but not really understood. I've found her methods and advice easy to understand and quite helpful. The lessons at the end of the chapters really helped to teach just how planning a novel can work to lay the groundwork for successfully writing a novel, and a quality one at that. In a way it was much like understanding how putting together a piece of furniture by following directions can similarly apply to writing a novel - Step 1 do this, Step 2 decide that, and in doing so eliminating all those issues that keep a person from ACTUALLY writing that novel they've always dreamed of. .
If you are a Beginning Writer, A Struggling to Finish Writer, or even a writer who finds it difficult to get comfortable with writing - then I highly recommend this book. It is easy to follow, regardless of whether you're just starting a first draft to a new novel or revisiting old works that just never felt right. I myself often return to the book just to re-read certain areas as I work through other drafts and stories. I would highly recommend that one by the "Printed" version. I made notes all through my book because I adapted some of the methods in ways that better suited my own writing techniques - and I think that's important for every writer.
