Publisher Comments:

Combining sympathy with practical advice, this guide enables writers to overcome mental and spiritual battles to get words on a page. Anecdotes from established authors, psychological theory, and hands-on exercises help writers understand and move beyond writers block. Topics include preventing procrastination, generating inspiration, staying passionate, targeting long-term happiness, the role of relationships, and dealing with both rejection and success. This sound advice will give any writer, beginner or professional, a road map to greater productivity, confidence, and satisfaction.

Review:

"Here is another manual for writers by a fiction instructor and published author who has given serious thought to the vocation....Those who appreciate the honest reflections of a practicing and thoughtful writer will value the opportunity to listen in." Herbert E. Shapiro, Library Journal

Review:

"The most useful, reliable writer's guide imaginable. Rogers's thoughtful chapters explain every kind of psychological pitfallknown to the working writer, whether beginner or pro. His counsel is always sensible and wise, and he knows how to solve the problems of a working writer's life. This is a remarkable book." Peter Straub, author of Magic Terror and Mr. X.

Review:

"Word Work will likely end up on every writer's desk, or it should. Rogers's wise and helpful book is full of sound advice for the beginner, innovative ideas for the working writer, even ingenious motivation techniques for the stalled professional. Every writer will find something of value, including those who just need a little push to get started each day." Jean M.Auel, author of The Clan of the Cave Bear and The Shelter of Stone
