The Pursuit of Perfection: And How It Harms Writers | [Kristine Kathryn Rusch]

The Pursuit of Perfection: And How It Harms Writers

In this WMG Writer's Guide, international best-selling author Kristine Kathryn Rusch discusses the destructive ways peer workshops and the quest for perfection derail many writers' careers. Listening to critics and academics - amateur and professional - often strips out the joy of writing. And a failure to recognize writing as a business furthers the potential damage. But Rusch offers hope for writers who have suffered at the hands of critique - external and internal - and outlines a path to healing.

    "Very useful and informative"

    As a budding writer, I found this course to be very helpful. I have "suffered" at a writer's workshop, and found her comments about them to be very healing. It motivates me to get back to my writing for the joy of it, and not worry so much about what others think. Additionally, she makes it very plain that writing is a business, and if one intends to write for a living, one better learn this aspect of it. I will very likely get a hard copy version of this book just to have the reference guides on these points. Overall, I found this to be very good and will look for more works by this author as I progress down the path to becoming a full time writer.
