I liked how organized all the material and concepts were and I enjoyed the author's voice. There was some useful information that I intend to put to practice but the book itself is not extensive. It's a good beginner book though.

This book provides helpful tools on how to plan for writing. These tools help save time by giving ideas on creating a road map for the writing. I have found this helpful, because I am bad about getting excited over a writing project and just jumping in and start writing. Soon, after several thousands words into the writing, I'm stuck. Where do I go next with the writing? This book provides great tools for how to plan. The Mind Map is my favorite. It is so simple but extremely useful. I recommend this book for any type of writer.
