Abstract:

For the first time, you'll find quotations about writing organized by and keyed to real questions writers and authors ask.from "How do I get started? to "Why do writers write, anyway?" to "What do I do about writer's block" to "Where do you get your ideas" and 16 more. Authors' voices are heard here that appear in no other collection of writing and the book quotes lots of women, many recent writers. This book includes nearly 6,000 quotations. They offer at times whimsical, clever, witty, at times serious, and helpful insights into the writing game collected and organized by someone who has been in this game for three decades-writing, editing, publishing, consulting.
