Overview

The Maeve Binchy Writers' Club by Maeve Binchy

“The most important thing to realize is that everyone is capable of telling a story.” –Maeve Binchy
 
If you scribble story ideas on the backs of receipts…
If you file away bits of overheard conversation from the coffee shop...
If you’ve already chosen the perfect pen name...
Well, then the journey has begun!
 
In this warm and inspiring guide, beloved author Maeve Binchy shares her unique insight to how a best selling author writes: from finding a subject and creating good writing habits to sustaining progress and seeking a publisher.
 
Whether you want to write stories or plays, humor or mysteries, Binchy prescribes advice for every step with her signature humor and generous spirit. She has called upon other writers, editors, and publishers to add their voices to this treasury of assistance for budding writers and a refreshing dose of encouragement for longtime scribes. And once you are ready, an appendix offers of writing awards and competitions and a selection of websites and literary journals.

If you are a writer who is stuck in a rut, or someone who aspires to be a writer, you will definitely find this book as an inspiration. I have been looking for something that gives me a breakdown of how to get started organizing and writing my first novel, and I really found this book as useful. There are pages throughout the book that are blank, so if something strikes you as an interesting or important thing to remember, just jot it down on the blank page in that section! She really comes at the book at a novice writers' level, or from someone who has experienced all the trials and tribulations that writers go through. I definitely recommend this if you want an inspiration to write a book!
