0 Reviews
Every writer at one point or another hits a bump in their literary road, the dreaded writer's block. Rather than lament his sorry fate, Sutton pledged to himself to write an essay a week about the writing process. Not only did this yearlong process keep him inspired and writing, but he has now completed an insightful, clear and gentle manual for all the other writers out there facing their own fears. This book has many wise, simple (and achievable) tips and ideas for keeping the creative juices flowing.
