    The book helped me to look at my own manuscript in a fresh light It made me reflect about the things that I had completely skipped out on in my hurry to finish off the final draft As a writer, I think we all have a tendency to get holed up in our houses and not really be in touch with what goes on around us In that way, after going through the 52 exercises in the book, I felt much motivated to be out and about, to get my head clear and have a fresh dose of ideas The author says that it could be [...]
