Helpful and Thought Provoking

Thinking twice about spending one Credit on a short audio book, this one is a keeper.

Listen to it with pen and paper ready, and be prepared to pause the audio book for taking notes. The audio book is sort of a list, but narrated in a pleasant and thought provoking way.

With a current novel you are working on, the discussed aspects of world building will trigger your imagination and understanding of the true, inner workings of your novel's world.

Would appreciate a book about character building by the same author.

Review

Good advice mostly, however some parts were slightly obvious. Good, enthusiastic narrator, easy to follow.
