Overview

When she was a college student, aspiring writer Carren Strock's English professor told her, "Some people are writers, and some people aren't. You are not a writer."

She didn't pick up a pen for more than fifteen years… until Robert Redford came to town.

Appearing in Redford's movie led to writing for national magazines, and then to selling her first nonfiction book to a major New York publisher.

Now Carren Strock lays out her improbable journey from "not a writer" to professional writer. She shares what she's learned along the way, and tells you how you can do it, too.

Divided into three sections, A Writer's Journey tells you what you need to know before, during, and after writing a book. In brief and to-the-point chapters, Strock provides clear and concise tips on how to stay motivated as you hone your skills, and write your book, and how to avoid the pitfalls that could derail your career. She also gives you advice on how to find a good agent, navigate the world of publishing, and market your book.
