Doing What You Love: Practical Strategies for Living a Creative Life (The Writing Life Series) Paperback – October 23, 2017
About the Author
Janni Lee Simner lives in the Arizona desert, where the plants know how to bite and the dandelions have thorns. In spite of these things—or maybe because of them—she believes she lives in one of the most stunning places on earth. Her post-apocalyptic Bones of Faerie trilogy is set after the war between the human and faerie realms has destroyed the world, leaving behind a land filled with deadly magic. The first book, Bones of Faerie, was dubbed, “Pure, stunning, impossible to put down or forget,” by World Fantasy Award winner Jane Yolen. School Library Journal describes the second book, Faerie Winter, as, “A hauntingly exquisite portrait of a postapocalyptic world.” She’s also the author of Thief Eyes, a contemporary young adult fantasy based on the Icelandic sagas; of the kids’ adventure story Tiernay West, Professional Adventurer; of the short-story collection Unicorn Seasons; and of three more novels and more than 30 more short stories, including appearances in Welcome to Bordertown and Cricket magazine. Her short story, “Drawing the Moon,” was turned into a short independent film, and she recently wrote the script for the video game The Huntsman: Winter’s Curse. Doing What You Love is part of the Writing Life series, which began with Finding Your Sense of Place. To learn more about Janni Lee Simner’s work visit her website at www.simner.com.

I kept on highlighting passages as I read, as I came across various bits that spoke to me so strongly, I knew I'd want to come back to them later. They felt like perfectly crystallized pieces of advice from a very smart, caring older sister, and they really hit me with force, making me think hard...and then take deep breaths and say "YES."
(Also, Simner is really careful throughout to keep on emphasizing that everyone's process is their own, and what works for her may not work for others, but in fact my own process is very similar to hers, so a LOT of her descriptions and realizations about her own process resonated very strongly for me on a personal level.)
Highly, highly recommended!
