Editorial Reviews

"A valuable collection of helpful exercises, thought-provoking ideas, personal anecdotes, and tips." -Writers Connection

"The authors are saying many of the same things that Brenda Ueland did in If you Want to Write...but they're taking it further...A meaty little book...I came away from it aglow, in love (again!) with my quest as a writer." -T.J. Banks, The Writing Self
