When my son saw this book sitting on our kitchen counter, he said, "Wow, things must be bad, huh?" That made me laugh, but the truth is, I do sometimes struggle with the soul-crushing aspects of being a professional writer - from the push to be on social media to the seemingly endless rejections to my own personal tendency to compare myself and my successes/failures with other writers. I appreciate Cyzewski's no-nonsense approach and his pragmatic advice on everything from navigating social media and publicity to dealing with adversity and the tendency to compare. He also offers ample encouragement and inspiring wisdom that will lift your beleaguered writer's spirit. Whether you're a seasoned freelance professional or just stepping a toe into the freelance waters, do yourself a favor and add "Write Without Crushing Your Soul" to your resource shelf.

There are lots of books that tell us how to write. Information on how to find agents, tips for picking a good editor, ideas on how to write more effectively. This book includes all of that information in a way that is easily accessible for both novice and experienced writers. He addresses information that is necessary for those who wish to publish in the traditional manner, and also for those who wish to publish independently. But where this book separates itself from the rest of the noise is in the way that Ed offers advice for keeping your true self through each of these steps. As writers, we want to offer our best selves up so that we're able to write in an honest and convincing way, and Write Without Crushing Your Soul offers practical ways to keep yourself whole through a process that often wants to pull you apart. I'm so grateful for the wisdom provided in this book.
