This is an interesting and informative book that I’m sure will help many people. A lot of it seems to be common sense, but I’ve been writing for a few years. There are quite a few gems in here, including a passage on Writers Block. Consider the plumber, encourages the author. “Our plumber isn’t standing in the unfinished bathroom waiting for the Water Muse to strike him with inspiration.” Funny, but true. There is also advice on, among other things, being realistic, patient, being dedicated and being a “finisher”.
There’s a lot of gems here, and I think it’s a good little book for someone thinking of growing beyond a hobby writer into the realm of a career.
