Totally worth it. You want to write? Nat'll tell you how. She'll calm you and stoke you and help you have compassion for yourself in the process.

This book is different from the rest. Each chapter is a discrete whole, with to-the-point essays illustrating the concept. It is her familiar chatty style, but with plenty of meat on the bones. It is not a workbook as such. It is much more readable, I feel -- it's something I can go back to over and over.
It also is aimed at experienced writers, people who are weaving together narrative, character, plot, tone, etc. in existing manuscripts. There's a dearth of instructive material for people who've reached that stage of development, but this book takes it all in hand. Nicely done.
Now I have to come up with a set number of words to put here in order to meet the minimum requirement when I have already said all I want to in the first word.
