520 |a This volume presents the author's offbeat wisdom about how to write. She recounts her personal experiences to reveal her writing techniques and how she overcomes obstacles that interfere with the writing flow. The author offers concrete suggestions about character, plot, setting, and other topics of interest to writers. She also offers irreverent advice about how to navigate through the dark underbelly feelings of self-doubt, inadequacy, and jealousy that are inevitable parts of any writer's experience. Her humorous advice is based on her own experience and honest self-analysis which provides writers the necessary perspective to keep writing through the difficult times that all writers encounter.
