I tend to write quite a lot. Not official writing by any means, just this blog and my journal, and things that I do for work. I’ve always had a fantasy of being an author though. A fairly vague fantasy, mind you, but a fantasy. I checked this book out because I was curious about all the tips and tricks of writing.
Always wanted to be a writer? Stop wasting time and start your writing life today!
With warmth and humor, the author welcomes you into the writer’s life as someone who has been there on the other side looking in. Like a freshman orientation for writers, this book includes an in-depth exploration of all the elements of a writer’s life, from your writing practice to your reading practice, to your writing craft and the all-important and often-overlooked business of writing. Harness the powers of crowdsourcing and social media to grow your writing career, and use the most current research on success, gamification, and lifestyle design to take your writing life to the next level. Complete with writing exercises, tools, checklists, infographics, and behind-the-scenes tips from working writers of all types, this book offers everything you need to jump-start a successful writing life.
I don’t remember much about this book honestly. What I do remember comes from jogged memories of when I was writing my Goodreads review. And it was a lot of repetitive things throughout the book, that I felt I already knew or could have found online. Granted, I’m most likely never going to be an author, or even a famous blogger. But I do know that the writing that I do right now, I enjoy it. And that’s all that I really want to do. If you want to become a better writer, this is a book for you; if you want to be an author, this is the book for you; if you just want to write, this is the book for you.
