A friendly guide to creative writing.
"...This book does not aim to teach you everything about the English Language. It doesn't want to bore you with an extremely detailed history, confuse you with Jargonistic Linguibabble or convince you of a right and wrong usage of our language. What it does aim to do is improve the flow, feel and general comprehensibility of your writing in order to reach the widest audience possible..."

Reviews from other sites, added here by the author. Reviews from Amazon.co.uk: C. Stewart: "I am a budding writer. My mind bursts with plots, but I struggle to get them down on paper, largely because my punctuation is so lousy. I have read a few 'guide to writing' type books, and I have to rate this as one of the best. It is written in easy to understand prose, with humour and some cute dragon pictures to boot. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone wanting to hone their writing skills. Great book." Ms. Na Sansbury: "This book, unlike other writing guides, does not make you feel inferior. It is a book, written mainly in the first person, so is relaxed and friendly. The references to current and successful novels give you an informative insight to writing your own novel as well as ease of access to well thought out examples. The explanations go into enough detail to be understood without confusing technical jargon, and the chapters are perfectly structured to... More > guide you through the creation of your own world. Overall, this book, due to the glossary, can be used for quick reference or a close guide to the formation of a novel. Either or, the explanations and the breakdown really help whether you are writing a poem, drabble or novel... and the dragons are pretty awesome too. Brilliant buy!" Jazzmin Watson: "Very readable and funny as well as instructing. Helps a lot with writing technique. I enjoyed the little pictures too! Clearly a lot of time and effort went into making this book. I heard that the author was completing exams when she wrote this so I really admire the work that went in. Very good read to read all the way through or just pick a point that you need at that moment. Very helpful but kind with it. Lovely." Review via email: "I got Sharpen Your Quill for Christmas (finally!) and I think you deserve a lot of praise. It is a wonderful book, and I especially enjoy the humour you slip into it. (Managing to not put me to sleep after two sentences in a Grammar book is quite a feat). Also, I liked how you added stuff I recognized (great books, stuff from the site [Mugglenet Fanfiction]). It made it a very fun read. And it wasn't only fun, I learned a lot! "< Less
