Product description


I love this book! Beautifully written, it’s full of practical, down to earth advice, as well as more thought-provoking passages, and things I’d never thought of, or didn’t know, before. ~ Abi Burlingham, author and artist

An invaluable addition to your writer’s bookshelf. I have recommended it to several authors and will be rereading it myself as I need to. ~ Cressida Dowling, The Book Analyst

Inspiring, enabling, but not at all wishy washy – it rightly emphasizes the necessity of working at this craft. ~ Gill Payne, aspiring writer

Most writing manuals are aimed at people seeking publication for the first time, whereas Alexander has much to say about mid- or late-career crises in which a writer can feel stale, even trapped by success, and in need of a fresh approach. ~ Linda Newbery, Costa Book Prize

Jenny writes in such an easy, friendly and re-assuring style that it’s tempting, if you are a galumphing reader like me, to speed through the pages. I’d advise reading this book with a pencil in hand, underlining sentences that resonate, and suggestions that require deeper pondering... ~ Penny Dolan, children’s author

A philosophy which will make you feel even better about your writing life. ~ Alex Gutteridge, children’s author
