    7. This is really good to get your writing juices flowing. I wouldn't exactly pin it as inspirational, but I would definitely say that if you've managed to hit a block, the exercises here, if you're up to it, will definitely help. I've read this book heaps of time. I might've skipped some parts, but either way, each time I read it, I always get the sudden urge to write again. And each time I read it, it's as if I'm discovering something new about it.It also gets you to be creative as well, and it d [...]

    8. I have an opinion on NZ authors, many people I know share. I'm not going to voice it over . (If you know exactly what I mean, you'll understand) This book however surprised me. Though it lacked information on how to layout a novel, it was excellent for on-the-go excersises and her experience as a fiction author really shone through. It wasn't as useful to me, because it didn't talk much about fantasy and that's the genre of the story I'm writing. I think that it would be excellent for any other [...]

    9. This book completely lives up to five stars.I find it very creative and more relaxed. This was actually better than my expectations. Most writing books are good but too formal(Who can be formal when their writing?). I also love how the ending chapter is about expressing yourself through writing and knowing yourself. My favorite thing were the writing exercises! They really get your imagination going and you might have a story if you use them. This book is wonderful if you use it to its full exte [...]

    10. This book is part of my creative writing collection.I always revisit them.Though I write less often at the moment, they help provide possibilities.Different takes on writing give us ideas and starting points.Words and writing take us places we never imagined, not always good places, but that is part of the learning process.Lots of fun to be had following the exercises or just choosing them randomly.Good tool for journaling or any creative activity.

    11. This is a wonderful book for any writer of any type of story or paper. The author uses juicy writing of her own as she walks you through the writing of an engaging story. There are plenty of examples and exercises. My favorite was her reinforcement of the importance of editing. After reading the sentence three times I got it. It went something like this. Edit to be sure you didn't out a word. This book is well written and a joy to read.

    12. This book is *amazing*, the best writing book I have ever read- Brigid Lowry's style is fun and engaging and her excercises (the TONS of them) are all so so good. Poetry, stories and bits are scattered throughout and you'll fall in love. She also covers TONS of topics, from notebooks to plot, from lists to food amazing.

    13. I loved this book, and still do! It is so well written, with fun writing exercises and tips, and really gives me inspiration. It has helped me out when I was stuck with my writing quite a few times. I would highly recommend it to any other teenage writer.

    14. Because this book is really written to encourage young writers, it is super-practical and fun. I plan to make many of the suggestions my own assignments, especially when my pen is not moving on its own. I certainly don't feel too old for the book to be for me!
