This is not a book that will help you make a million dollars. This is not a book to teach you how to get tons of followers on Twitter or Facebook. This is a book for all writers. Whether you write full-time, part-time, as a hobby, or dream of writing one day, this book will strip down the layers of this fascinating career, examine all aspects of writing, and try to help blast through any blocks you have about writing.
It doesn’t matter what type of writer you are. Whether you have a story lodged in your heart, clawing to escape, or you are a full timer with a dozen manuscripts behind you. It doesn’t matter if you’re experienced or working on your first project. You are a writer because you write. Because you have something to say. Because you are alive, and want to share or work out what burns within your soul—both good and bad.
Writing is a big fuck you to everyone who has ever judged you not worthy, or belittled your creativity, or thought you were weird. It’s a way of balancing things, sifting through who you are, who you want to be, and who you will decide to be. So, let’s do what writers have been doing for centuries, all over the world.
