This quotation book offers some of the best advice about writing and getting published today. The tips were culled from a wide variety of sources, including books, magazines, trade journals, speeches, as well as original gems from notable writers.
The book includes:
• Advice on how to get commercially published
• What you need to consider if you are thinking of self-publishing
• The habits that separate professional writers from the amateurs, and
• Why you might be better off working at McDonalds, and much, much more.
The book also includes some pretty decent jokes and facts of literary life that aspiring writers need to know.
In the introduction, editor William A. Gordon writes: "This book should give writers, especially aspiring writers, a better head start."
