It's broken down into small two-page chapters with brief little stories that illustrate just why you're writing in the first place: Not for your audience, not for agents or editors. Ultimately, you're spending your spare moments putting pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) for yourself. If your writing isn't making *you* happy, then why are you doing it?
I keep Write Within Yourself at my desk and read a story at random before I start my daily writing session. Often, the page I pick is exactly what I need to hear.
Quote from Four Reasons:
"...Choose what you want to believe and believe only in it, evidence be damned. Evidence in my experience, changes precisely to align with whatever I believe the most."
Just to give you an example of the countless pearls of this book.
And the essay about the brass rings was simply endearing. I will certainly come back to this book again, and again.
By Belangela G. Tarazona author of The Child of Dawn and El niño del alba (Spanish Edition)
