I am just getting into writing professionally and this book is the perfect resource.
I stumbled upon the book while at the library, but I realized quickly that I needed to purchase this book so that I could refer to it as needed.
Highly recommend it!
The authors of this book are realistic - they know that when people sit down and begin to write, the journey begins to look quite daunting and many give up after a few lines or pages. There is a lot to learn, to think about, to research. They want you to give it the old college try, as they say, so this book is here to help you and make it a bit more fun along the way! This "how to" helpers guide gives tips on making your own space to write in, finding your "voice" and genre, keeping journals for ideas and to fan those artistic flames, literary terms, and even some writing seminars to attend and publishers of children's literature.
The tone of any advice in this book is firm but reassuring. Don't expect to get overnight results or quit your job for instant fame and success, but DO work hard and have fun while you're crafting your masterpiece, and something great may come of it. With any luck and this book by my side, who knows? Maybe I'll turn out the next "Harry Potter" series. :o)
