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.

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.
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.
