"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

I like this book because it's like having a coach at your elbow, supporting your best decisions and steering you away from things that, in your heart, you probably know are a waste of time. In some ways, this book is like having a trusted support group available 24/7.
You can't beat the price, and I heartily recommend this book for writers at any level of experience.
A batch of heartfelt letters written by authors. Really unique. I doubt you'll find another collection like this in a hurry...
These are some points that captured my attention:
1. The three P's - patience, perseverance, passion.
2. Write down your ideas, you WILL forget them later.
3. Practice creative altruism - it's all about supporting others, and in doing so you're supporting yourself too.
4. Schedule time for writing.
5. Celebrate every milestone, no matter how big or small.
6. Distance from your manuscript lends a fresh perspective.
7. Economize your words.
8. Find out what doesn't work, so that you can work out what does.
9. Go to conferences. Network. Mingle.
10.Yes, you are running a business even when you think you're not.
11. A writer must read, read, read.
12. Backlist is everything.
...a printed copy of these points pasted above my computer is a good idea...don't you think?
