Writing is My Drink: A Writer's Story of Finding Her Voice by Theo Pauline Nestor
Book: Writing is My Drink: A Writer's Story of Finding Her Voice (and a Guide to How You Can Too)
Author: Theo Pauline Nestor
Narrator (if applicable):n/a
Release date (if applicable): Published
Synopsis: Ms. Nestor invites readers into her life by writing this poignant memoir of how/why the path she led to her becoming a writer. She has partnered this with real life "tips" for writers at all levels to look within themselves to improve their craft.
My rating: 4 Stars
My opinion: I found this book to be a very unusual, well written read that combines a life story with hints/helps for the budding writer.
In the layout, she has "soul searching" tips that I think were probably my favorite to the entire read.
I can't see a non-writer enjoying this book, but definitely could see a writer and/or budding writer, like me, devouring it.

Would I recommend? : I have mentioned it to writers, but they were already aware of it. I believe this book has made the "writing" circles. I know it is in my Amazon cart for me to delve in deeper, particularly the tips.
