Review by: Jacqueline Hopper on July 17, 2012 :
Here's a book I wish I'd had when I started writing my first novel; a project that took me ten years from start to finish. I haven't completed reading Nail Your Novel: Why Writers Abandon Books And How You Can Draft, Fix and Finish With Confidence yet, but already I'm implementing Roz Morris's System and feeling much more confident about my writing.
I have a feeling my writing productivity will skyrocket in ways I'd only dreamed of and hoped for. Thank you, Ms. Morris, for designing a system that not only tames and utilizes my 'inner critic', but also helps make my writing goals attainable.
