For all you aspiring novelists out there, I heartily recommend this book. Very inspiring, very educational. I am now reading Harry Potter and the prisoner of Azkaban by JK Rowling, which I bought to see what all the fuss is about (on King's recommendation of the Author). Though it's not the sort of thing I'm prone to reading and bearing in mind that it's meant for children, I can honestly say that it is actually very good--reminds me of a sort of more sophisticated present day Enid Blyton 'Five' novel without the racist slurs. I think when I finish it I will go re-edit my own finished novel for the umpteenth time and put some of my new-found knowledge to use. And then.. I really want to start writing another; I told you--inspiring!
