My thoughts about A Wordy Woman's Guide for Writing a Book ~~

So far, I have loved every book that I have read written by Dawn. When I had the opportunity to read her newest book, A Wordy Woman's Guide for Writing a Book, I was hesitant. One, I typically don't read non-fiction books and two, I never thought about writing a book. Or have I? 

But that's exactly who this book is for—that person who just might be thinking about writing their first book but really doesn't know where or how to start. 

As Dawn states at the beginning of her book "My goal is for this book to inspire other women who want to write their first fiction book."

Dawn works through the process, step-by-step, explaining each step in understandable detail. I loved how she used her books and books written by others to give examples of the different points she was trying to make. 

After reading A Wordy Woman's Guide, I have a greater understanding of all the hard work and thought that goes into an author penning a book. It's not just words flowing out of their heads onto the paper or computer. There is a method and steps to writing and Dawn does a wonderful job of laying it all out there. I know I'll be thinking about all that goes into creating a story the next time I'm reading someone's book.

And who knows, maybe I'll try my hand at writing a book someday. This would be the perfect tool to get me started. 

I received a copy of A Wordy Woman's Guide from the author in exchange for my honest review.


About the author

Dawn Husted holds a BS from Texas A&M University. When not writing, she’s either camping or dreaming about camping. She lives in southern Texas with her husband and two kids. She is a member of SCBWI and Texas Association of Authors. Dawn also works as a paid freelance writer.

Author of Touch of Darkness, Scythe of Darkness & Safe. Upcoming releases published under Yaupon Berry Press.

Who am I

I’m married and have two energetic kids. My TBR list is getting a little long, a few books are: The Boy Who Harnessed The Wind, Beautiful Creatures, Night Circus, and The Longest Ride. I'm in the middle of reading Asylum by Madeleine Roux.

Years back, I helped build an orphanage in Malawi and became fascinated with other countries. I'd love to travel remote parts of the world one day.

I graduated from Texas A&M University with a bachelor's degree in something other than writing. But I love to write! In my spare time, I study German, aber ich bin nicht sehr gut. And in the rest of my spare time, I cook. If you follow my Instagram, you may find pictures of food. LOL.

I'm a strong believer in living life to the fullest. Otherwise, what's the point? And I don't let fear hold me back. I'd rather try and fail, than to have never tried. ~ from author's website
