A writing book with a difference. This one has a sense of humour. Well, strictly, it’s the authors’ sense of humour but it shines through the wisdom of her words in this book. I laughed out loud at some of the advice Lynne advocates here and vowed to implement much of it. Positive and affirmative, Handy Hints for Writers is crammed with tips that will sustain you on your writing journey. A book to keep handy for those days when nothing seems to go the way you want it to and you doubt yourself as a writer. Easy to read and to dip in and out of, a little gem of wisdom sits on every page to light your way when the words won’t come. There aren’t many books that can make you laugh and inspire you at the same time but this is one of them.
Suzanne Ruthven : Author and editor of Writer’s Wheel magazine
Reading ‘Handy Hints For Writers’ is like attending one of Lynne Hackles workshops – you go to learn but you are also entertained by her self-deprecating sense of humour and the family anecdotes she uses to illustrate just where her writing ideas come from. In fact it would fit into the ‘Little Book of ...’ series because of the pearls of wisdom she drops casually into the text. As in life, the author raises a chuckle and gets you thinking ‘Yeah, I’ve done that’ - the next thing you’re recalling your own experiences and forming them into a poem, article or story. A great little ‘ideas’ book for those days when the ideas just won’t come. Highly recommended.
