good chunks of info and inspiration

This was great for a writer such as myself. It helped identify tone, pacing and other writing tools for horror and writing in general.

I am glad I bought this.

I am an amateur writer and have been wanting to try my hand at horror for a while. I enjoyed this narration and the information provided. The content contains some perspective, encouragement, details that are useful. Listening makes me feel like I can take my next step and start to learn how to plan and create a manuscript.

inspiring

The narrator drew me into the material. After I heard the sample I felt it wasn't like your ordinary book on how to write. I am going to re-listen to this audiobook for a long time.

Insightful

Quite a bit of information, though I need to listen to it a few more times. Good rules of thumb and advice about pacing and what audiences expect of horror.

Short but contains some useful observations

It's not exhaustive but it taught me a couple things that I'll be able to use in my projects.
