Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Dennis Palumbo has great insight into a writer?s psyche.... Every writer should have a shrink or this book. The book is cheaper." ?Gary Shandling, actor, comic, and writer

"wise, compassionate, and funny..." ?Aram Saroyan, poet and novelist

"Dennis Palumbo provides a sense of community in the isolation of writing, of knowing that we are not alone on this uncharted and privileged journey. He shows us that our shared struggles, fears, and triumphs are the very soul of the art and craft of writing." ?Bruce Joel Rubin, screenwriter, GhostandDeepImpact

Writer?s block. Procrastination. Loneliness. Doubt. Fear of failure. Fear of rejection. Just plain...fear. What does it mean if you struggle with these feelings on a daily basis?It means you?re a writer.Written with a unique empathy and deep insight by someone who is both a fellow writer and a noted psychotherapist, Writing from the Inside Out sheds light on the inner life of the writer and shows you positive new ways of thinking about your art?and yourself. Palumbo touches on subjects ranging from writer?s envy to rejection, from the loneliness of solitude to the joy of craft. Most of all, he leads you to the most empowering revelation of all?that you are enough. Everything you need to navigate the often tumultuous terrain of the writer?s path and create your best work is right there inside you.

Synopsis:

Written from the perspective of a successful writer, psychotherapist, and practising Zen Buddhist, these pieces convey encouragement, inspiration, and solid advice to help both experienced authors and novices navigate the sometimes tumultuous terrain of writing.
