Bryn Donovan is the best!Reviewed in the United States on 7 December 2020
I have two other books on the craft of writing by Bryn Donovan, so this was a automatic purchase for me and I was not disappointed. Readable and filled with helpful information--even though I have written dozens of books I still found it useful. Her editing tips were especially helpful and made me look twice at my current manuscript.

Great resource primer for new writers. Good reminders for seasoned scribes.Reviewed in the United States on 5 January 2021
Bryn Donovan’s Blank Page to Final Draft is a highly effective, step-by-step guide for anyone crafting their first novel. Furthermore, the revision & editing sections are welcome reminders for more seasoned scribes. Especially for aspiring writers who haven’t completed a full manuscript and/or employed other sets of eyes into their writing process, Donovan’s accessible, conversational tone offers an ideal model of what it’s like to work with a supportive yet assertive editor who best helps them hone their vision. Throughout the book, Donovan layers nurturing insight and encouragement regarding the psychology of the writing. Valuable takeaway for writers at any stage: if one wants to be a serious/resilient/prolific writer, learning to embrace the psychological ups and downs of the process is vital.

Essential reader, practical advice for writers anywhere in your publishing journeyReviewed in the United States on 23 November 2020
Whether you're a new writer or a seasoned novelist, this is an excellent book, chock full of insight and great advice for every step of the drafting process. I found Bryn's voice warm, encouraging, and easy to read. The advice she gives is concrete, immediately actionable, and very practical, which is rare in writing advice books (and I've read many of them!). The topic she covers is expensive: from plotting, to editing for pacing, to getting into the right mindset to write your best draft ever. She walks readers through the entire drafting process, touching on granular, frequently asked questions (Can I include song lyrics in my book?) to higher-level, craft questions (Are all adverbs bad? How do I punctuate/strengthen dialogue?). I consider myself a strong writer, and I'm an editor myself, and I know I'm going to be recommending this book to my colleagues and friends time and time again in the future.
