Brimming with support and suggested activities to develop your writing skills, Your Creative Writing Masterclass could be just what you need.I intend to write short stories, screenplays, and fiction novels. I have an inherent love for philosophy, logic and broadly speaking the hard sciences, so maybe included a few books how these relate to each other.

    I wasn't sure what to expect when I walked into this book, but I'm glad I read it because there's plenty of things in here that will be useful for years to come.The great thing about this book is that it deals with pretty much every aspect of writing. Not just the writing itself, but also how to deal with criticism, tips that might improve your daily routine, and even more. The book consists mostly of quotes from famous authors, and Wolff isn't exactly picky - he has done a surprisingly good job of getting quotes from writers on all sides of the spectrum, from Mark Twain to J.K. Rowling to W.H. Auden.When it's about writing and characters, the book doesn't bring much new things to the table and sometimes, due to the nature of all the quotes, can even be a bit indecisive, hence the four stars instead of five. But when it's not about the writing itself, there are plenty of good things in there and plenty that made me think.I was in a writing slump when I started reading this book, and now I'm out of it. Probably because my story moved on and got to a juicy bit, namely the ending, but I think this book also got me to get my act together and stop judging my writing for now. So it's definitely succeeded its purpose.This was a very informative and mildly entertaining book and I will certainly open it a few more times over the years.

    In Your Creative Writing Masterclass, Wolff successfully combines quotes, flash biographies, his own insight and advice together to create an enjoyable and informative piece on writing. What stands out is the huge variation in opinion and technique across 'classic' authors. Wolff appears to effortlessly summarise these differences and direct accordingly.Wolff bridges the gap between step-by-step writing guides and more general 'on writing' pieces. The lessons learned from this book are quite subtle and while I don't think anyone would walk about from reading it with a bag of techniques, but will feel a surge of confidence from listening to the masters.My only criticism is the 'action' sections at the end of each chapter - I tended to skip over these and found them mostly pointless, luckily they came a paragraph a piece and were so easy to ignore they did not detract from the book.

    Jurgen Wolff delivers excellent advice for writers of short stories, fiction, and screenplays.As a creative writing teacher, I would use Your Creative Writing Masterclass along with Lajos Egri's The Art of Dramatic Writing.You won't find a better pairing. I'm going to buy the Jurgen Wolff book because it's the most useful I've read in a long time on the art and craft of writing.Buy The Art of Dramatic Writing too while you're at it.

    This book is great for someone who has been writing for a while and needs a highlight of common issues regarding writing. It's also great to hear what the masters have said concerning many aspects of writing. It is however not for beginners. This would make a horrible first "how to write" first book. Definitely not a masterclass. There isn't much substance, context, and instruction. It's a good addition to any aspiring writer's library. Not a good start though.

    This book brings together everything all shorter books on Writing focuses on, with its quotes from impressive authors of success in the past and present and tips and ideas on how to create your character and narrative, the book is the crème de la crème of books on writing! It takes some time to finish which I think is a plus from a book on writing, in my opinion I want something that delves into the advice extensively rather than skim them over. Recommended!

    I think I expected too much out of this book, but I did enjoy the sections that invite the reader to think about their own work and consider what he is saying, really forcing you to pay attention and put this new knowledge to use.

    I found this book very insightful, and the many ways to go about writing a novel listed by the author quite helpful. I really enjoyed the advice from many authors, such as Dickens and Poe, that was scattered throughout the book.

    A collection of writing advice, quotes, exercises and tips doesn't get much better. A textbook that I enjoyed reading. This does everything right by me.
