Featured Book of the Month
 

The Complete Writer: A Guide To Tapping Your Full Potential
by Beverly Walton Porter, Mindy Phillips Lawrence, Pat McGrath Avery, Joyce Faulkner

Red Engine Press
192 pp


Authored by four professional freelancers, The Complete Writer is packed with how-to's, advice, wisdom and inspiration. Pulling from their diverse backgrounds, the authors discuss time management, writer's block, networking, marketing, resume writing, query letters, launching an e-zine, among various other topics. I highly recommend this book, especially for beginning and aspiring writers.

Excerpt:

What's the biggest excuse I hear from people who want to write, but don't? I'll bet you can already guess the answer: "But I don't have time to write!"

The concern is understandable. In today's society, forty hours of work per week has stretched to sixty, sometimes eighty, and after work we have the kids' activities, community volunteer work and other obligations and concerns. Not having enough time seems to be an insidious disease wending its way through society's veins. We try to be all, do all, please all. Here's the problem—we can't be/do/please all the time.
