Wonderful Time

I had a wonderful time reading/watching this book and getting insights into how various authors do their craft. I thought the subject matter and style was refreshing and very useful for anyone who is curious about Creative Writing and the human aspect of the process.

Waste of time, space and bandwidth

There is nothing interesting or inspiring in this book about writing or anything close to that. This isn't a book in which you will find valuable information about writing, let alone creative writing. If you value your internet bandwidth and hard disk space, don't waste your time with this large pile of garbage!
