Reviewed by me as part of Rosie Amber's Book Review Team
There are two distinct schools of thought concerning creative writing courses and 'how to' books: those who consider writing a skill that can be taught, and those who think that the ability to write compellingly is an innate talent that you either have or you don't; yes, your craft can be improved upon and can go to pot if you don't watch out, but if you don't have what it takes to keep readers turning the pages, no amount of diligent study/applying of advice will make that much difference. I stand, arms folded, in the latter camp and thus approached this review choice with cynicism.
I am delighted to report that I now see my view was a little blinkered, and I bow to Bridget Whelan's expertise.
