Every creative person has an author hidden inside their heart who wants to write a book about something. It could be their own story or one inspired from life around them. Or simply something that is close to the heart.

But rarely does anyone pen down their thoughts on paper. Why? Because it takes a lot of courage to do that.

Yes, it takes courage to get over the fear that once you put your thoughts on paper, they might not look as fancy as they do in your head. The fear that it might turn out to be utter bull shit, making you look stupid in your own eyes.

If you have ever penned down something, kudos, you are ahead of the 90% of people who consider themselves as “creatives.”

My Take

Starting from the cover a opened book with light background color is simple and yet beautiful. The title of the book is apt according to the plot.

This a collection of information’s about how to start writing novel, tips for how to cope with writer’s block, editing your written work, publishing and marketing.

This book is extremely helpful in explaining the process of getting published for aspiring writer’s. The words were simple and the language is lucid which eased the reading. Narration is done well.The book is free from any grammatical errors and has been perfectly edited.
