“5 stars! Motivating & fun! The description for You Can Write—Really! promised it would be fun and filled with practical advice – and it is! The author’s style is a welcome breath of fresh air! Most writing books are stuffy, boring, or spend too much time focusing on grammar rules – this book is different – and that’s what makes it so good. Ms. Wilkins gives you a course in Writing 101 and walks you through the process of writing a story from beginning to end. Her first-hand advice, tips, and strategies and peppered with interesting writing exercises that get you thinking and keep you motivated. (And if you’re not a “motivated writer” – she even has a chapter devoted to excuses!)
