Writer To Writer wasn't as good as G.C.L.'s previous book on writing ("Writing Magic: Creating Stories That Fly"). I found this one boring and hard to read...
I feel that, unlike Writing Magic, this book is more for advanced writers or someone with specific questions about their writing.
My favourite book on writing is still "Spilling Ink" by Anne Mazer & Ellen Potter!

Great nonfiction from a writer I admire. For someone who can imagine themselves becoming an author, I highly recommend it.

Even better than her first! All and any of Levine's writing advice is helpful to anyone hoping to be an author someday. Great for everyone, young and old! Plus, Levine also talks poetry in this book. ;)
