Welcome to the Writer's Life: How to Design Your Writing Craft, Writing Business, Writing Practice, and Reading Practice

Welcome to the Writer’s Life: How to Design Your Writing Craft, Writing Business, Writing Practice, and Reading Practice by Paulette Perhach

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


If you have written and started to get published; if you have written and are still trying to be published or you are thinking of getting into writing, this is an essential read and reference.

Each chapter covers a different part of the writing process from why you should be a writer to the business of agents and publishing. Along the way, you will find experiments and writing exercises that are practical applications of the text. You can do them as you read or wait and do them later (the website (https://welcometothewriterslife.com/) has a list of them as either pdf or WORD documents. And for added value, the website has checklists to assist you as you learn the craft (example – Narrative Editing Checklist).

As with many other books on writing, quotes from authors and poets give you a sample of experiences and encouragement.

So, in short, this is going to sit on the shelf above my computer and along with my copy of Steve Carr’s GETTING YOUR SHORT STORIES PUBLISHED so I can refer to them when writing.
