This review is from: Chicken Soup for the Writer's Soul: Stories to Open the Heart and Rekindle the Spirit of Writers (Chicken Soup for the Soul) (Hardcover)
Chicken Soup for The Writer's Soul is an inspirational book for writers who often find themselves isolated and misunderstood. It contains many essays of those who, despite all of the obstacles, managed to succeed anyway. Although as a writer myself, I have heard many of the same stories, I still find them to be enjoyable. However, what I like best in the book are the stories that tell how writing has managed to make a difference in the lives of people. My favorite chapter of all was Defining Moments. One of the most important things about this book is the subject matter doesn't grow old. Any time a writer feels down and discouraged he or she can go to it and find an essay about someone who was in the same position. Another important thing was the list of authors in the back of the book. Many listings have phone numbers, addresses, or emails and many of the writers invite readers to contact them. To me, this seems like a possible way to find a mentor. For all writers, be warned, once you read this book, you will do some soul searching of your own about your writing. I know that I did.
