Publisher Comments:

“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.

This was a spontaneous purchase for me, which doesn't happen often, and I couldn't have had a more wonderful experience. Maeve has such a relaxed style of writing. She shows you what it means to her to write a story, and inspires you to pick up the pen yourself, with dozens of noteworthy tips. I've read other books about writing, and they always indulge in the gory details of how hard it is to be a successful writer. After reading this one, I was refreshed, encouraged, and ready to take on the challenge. Thanks Maeve!
