Lots of thoughts for writers

This is a book filled with clear thinking and valuable nuggets about writing. The author’s level headed thinking about the craft, why we do it and how we do it is a welcome encouragement for writers. The quotes and anecdotes alone are worth the listen.

Reassuring Mentorship in a book!!!

This was the most wonderful ‘pep talk’ I’ve ever received! I love this book! The talent of writing was shown by example completely. The author definitely understand A Write Life. I will read this in paperback and add it to my library. This is a MUST for writers of any kind. Enjoy!

Inspiring

Listening to this during the day really helped my writer's block - I've been stuck for a while and unsure how to progress a story and feeling a bit deflated, but this really re-inspired me. There are so many lovely phrases and descriptions to get you pumped for writing, so much so it led to a 5 hour session for me that resulted in resolving the story issues I'd been having. It also made me want to continue and sparked ideas for others. I really do recommend it, even if you just have it on in the background. The way it's read is with such enthusiasm and positivity that it's hard not to be affected by it.

great if your thinking of writing a novel

the chapters are really short and succinct. I guess each one is it's own pep talk. Not bad at all. some transferable tips too.
