|A must-read for today's writer|
In my ongoing efforts to celebrate and highlight women of achievement during Women's History Month, I am delighted to share the works of Kerrie L. Flanagan and Jenny Sundstedt, co-authors of "Write Away."
Where do I begin? First off, the last time I was this excited about cuddling up to something after a long day, it had a mustache. :-)
I love this book! And you will too.
It's smart, strategic, cleverly written, thoughtful, interactive, engaging, and easy to follow.
The chapters are short, but substantive. "Write Away" made me laugh, think, nod, reflect and commit to becoming more intentional about my creative goals in 2016.
My favorite chapters included:
- Get out of your own way
- Writing Naked
- Writer's Block Cures
The book also includes motivational quotes, monthly goal-setting sections, tools, handy websites, and several pages devoted to recording and tracking your freelance submissions.
- I don't think that the title of the book quite does it justice; I would have chosen something a little more original.
- The book did not include "Pen and Prosper" in its list of popular websites referenced. An oversight, I'm sure. :-)
"Write Away" contains about 192 pages, priced at $11.95, for those of you seeking to purchase a copy to add to your writer's library. I highly recommend that you do.
Thoughts? What book is keeping you up past your bed time lately? Do tell.
