Irene Hannigan helps dispel the loneliness of writing with friendly, common sense advice on keeping a writing practice, on writing as process, and on the importance of suspending the internal critic to keep things fluent. – Tom Daley, Creative Writing Instructor
Write On! How to Make Writing a Pleasurable Pastime is a book that fulfills a niche that has been ignored in the many books that have been written about writing. Written in a conversational and user-friendly style it offers guidance and concrete strategies that will enable individuals to learn how to make writing a useful and gratifying part of their lives. It is a book that maintains the integrity of what the writing process entails but does so in a way that does not focus on publishing, in a traditional sense, as the ultimate goal.
