Spilling Ink | [Anne Mazer, Ellen Potter]

Spilling Ink

Prompted by a neverending stream of letters pleading for advice on how to be a better writer, successful children’s authors Anne Mazer and Ellen Potter put their heads together to create this useful guide. With dozens of books and decades of experience between them, the authors brought their distinct personal styles to the advice they had to offer. Now they have done the same for this audio version, with each author narrating her own sections.

Audible Editor Reviews

While ideal for a younger audience, this guide to being a better writer by veteran children's authors Anne Mazer and Ellen Potter is also a useful resource for anyone who wants to improve their writing skills. Mazer and Potter take turns performing their own work, and their distinct voices add a lot of fun and interest to topics such as the importance (or not) of outlines, where to find inspiration, and how to create believable characters. Potter is the cheerleader of the pair, and her perky voice contrasts well with Mazer's mature, sympathetic tone. Listeners will particularly enjoy the "I Dare You" portions that challenge them to get writing.
