Fitzgerald locked himself in his attic until The Great Gatsby was finished. Hemingway took a more casual approach, writing along the banks of the Seine River. Hawthorne found inspiration while working and living on Brook Farm.
Three great writers chose three different methods of writing-each one uniquely suited to the quirks and qualities of the individual artist.
Finding your own method-one that makes writing easier, more enjoyable and more productive-can be a challenge. But doing so can revolutionize the writing experience and take your work to a whole new level.
The key to great writing is not what you are writing, but how you are writing. In The Write Type, psychologist and novelist Karen Peterson shows you how to identify exactly what kind of writer you are, determine your unique preferences and tendencies, and then use them to create a personalized writing system that gets results.
Why wait? Discover your "write" type and start producing the best, most creative work of your life!
Praise for The Write Type:"Another excellent book about writing by Dr. Karen Peterson that . . . analyzes the very important psychological foundations and moods that ultimately lead either to avoiding the writing or to getting the writing done."-Dr. Robert Thayer, professor of psychology at California State University, Long Beach, and author of Calm Energy
"Once again, psychologist Peterson has delivered the goods to those of us struggling to write: a down-to-earth blend of comfort, encouragement, and practical advice."
