Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Popular author Levine offers copious writing advice in this companion to her earlier work on the subject, Writing Magic: Creating Stories That Fly (2006), using questions from her eponymous blog as a framework. Here, she offers general guidance, such as establishing good writing habits and finding a reader you trust, as well as specific direction for everything from building character to choosing and managing tense, drawing on examples of excellence from everyone from M. T. Anderson to Langston Hughes. Individual chapters on different elements of story offer practical suggestions the chapter on building tension features no fewer than 10 useful tools and conclude with a variety of writing prompts and a refrain to have fun, and save what you write! As the title suggests, Levine writes for a practiced audience; exercises often involve the revision of existing work, rewriting a story in verse, or in another tense, and a beginner might feel overwhelmed. Still, avid writers will find meaningful guidance, support, and inspiration in Levine's polished, enthusiastic instruction.--Barthelmess, Thom Copyright 2014 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: ""Have fun, and save what you write!" Those words close out nearly every chapter of this valuable writing guide, a companion to Levine's Writing Magic (2006), and they form the heart of the author's advice. Levine describes this book as the "greatest hits" of her blog, where she has discussed the craft of writing since 2009 (and where the exclamatory advice above closes out her posts). Chapters explore finding inspiration (and time to write), character- and plot-building, and writing poetry, among other topics. (Walking readers through the publication process, Levine notes, "We writers rely on the eagle eyes of copy editors! However, I still try to get the nitty-gritty right myself, and so should you.") Questions from visitors to Levine's blog are used as springboards, and Levine is generous in sharing her struggles, tactics, and experience. Ages 8-up. Agent: Ginger Knowlton, Curtis Brown.
