A Must Have For All Writers,
This review is from: The Positively Productive Writer (Paperback)Do you feel that your writing career is stuck in second gear? Fed up with all those rejection letters? Struggling to find enough time to write? Or do you think that you're never going to make it, and that you should give up?
In this book, Simon Whaley helps you overcome all these problems and more. Simon is a full-time, award winning, professional freelance writer and, drawing on his years of experience in a way that is both engaging and inspiring, he offers practical advice that will have you raring to get to your keyboard. The book gives clear, easy to read, instructions on goal setting, remaining focused, how to create your own writing space, how to find time to write, how to increase your productivity and how to deal with rejections.
Most importantly, however, Simon's book is all about staying positive and banishing those negative emotions - an essential skill for any writer. Positive writers write, negative writers don't, and it's the writers who write that get published. Simon tells us how to turn those negative moments in our lives into positive ones, and mentions `brain-training' techniques that make the task easier. This is an essential book for anyone who takes their writing seriously, aspiring or published, and it is one that will remain on my bookshelf for many years to come.
Probably the best book about writing that I've ever read.
