This was such a good guide. This is great for anyone struggling to write but wanting to. I get distracted by everything in my life but also didn't know where to start. This explains everything and has steps to follow and even to help you stay motivated. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
