I recently picked up The Forest for the Trees: An Editor’s Advice to Writers by Betsy Lerner.
I assumed it was a book on the craft of writing. I’ve only just started, but I’m realizing it’s something more – something like…
At a bargain rate!
“…This blog hopes to continue in the spirit of the book, answering basic questions such as how to write an effective query letter to more complex issues involving writers’ personalities, especially but not limited to their self-destructive proclivities. But mostly, it’s a place to regularly vent about publishing.”
“This is not a book about how to write. There are dozens of excellent books about writing… Rather, I hope to help you if you can’t start or finish a project, or can’t figure out what you should be writing. I offer advice to writers whose neuroses seem to get in their way, those who sabotage their efforts, those who have met some success but are stalled between projects.”
I love unexpected gifts.
