5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I wanted Feb. 23 2005
By PamelaUK - Published on Amazon.com
At last a book I can understand and follow and one that gives me the inspiration to "try" for myself.

I have always wanted to write about my own experiences but never felt confident enough--now I do.

So many of my questions have been answered with this book, such as "would anyone be even interested in my life" if so where do I start---how do I start--what comes next.

This excellent book has given me these answers and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to write but feels "timid" at starting out.

A million thanks to the Author Elsa McKeithan.

3.0 out of 5 stars This book is for beginners Feb. 5 2009
By Hussain Abdul-Hussain - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you are preparing to write a story on how you grew up in South Dakota, before your parents moved to California and you eventually ended up in Maryland, this book might have good tips for your memoires.
The book is designed for beginners and gives tips on how people should write without editing so that they keep on writing, then how they should learn editing to improve their writing skills, and finally how to write with love and emotions, a tip that cannot apply to all kinds of writers.
So if you are writing on that cookies recipe you came up with, or the memorable trip you made to the Bahamas, buy this book.
But if you are more of a professional writer looking to publish a book on your experience in civil, military or diplomatic service, then you might a more serious text book for better advice.
Also the style of the book is probably designed for sixth graders, with exercises and examples of fake journals.

1.0 out of 5 stars disapointed Sept. 26 2007
By Mordechai Hodis - Published on Amazon.com
I am a long time customer of Amazon and Amazon is my first place to look for books online. Normally the order arrives as ordered, on time or better.

However this time was a major let down. A 3-5 day shipping turned out to be estimated to be delivered in 3 weeks from the date of the order!
While that is outragous, the fact that is was never delivered is even worse. To top that the response time of support via email is measured in days and not hours. Overall - big big disapointment in Amazon. I hope this is an abberation and the great service and reliable Amazaon will re-emerge quickly.
