Perfect Writer’s Gift!
10 Liberating Truths that Empower You to Immediately Begin Producing Satisfying Writing for a Paying Readership, Establish an Impressively Productive Writing Routine, and More Fully Enjoy the Good Life of Becoming the Type of Writer You Always Knew You Could Be.
Struggling authors who attended The Learning Annex writing seminars, by Allen & Ellie Deever, were universally thrilled to discover the liberating secrets that revolved around the Ten Tenets of Writing. Now, for the first time, enjoy this popular portion of their famous seminar at a fraction of the lecture price. The Writers’ Conference in a Book contains all the information and more that audiences in Los Angeles, New York, San Diego, San Francisco and Toronto were thankful to receive from this dynamic writing duo, who never hold anything back when it comes to presenting info on what writers absolutely must know to become successful in the publishing industry, and what authors desperately need to understand in order to become highly productive.
Famous writer for The New Yorker, A.J. Liebling, once said, “I can write better than anyone who can write faster, and I can write faster than anyone who can write better.” Those fitting words describe the vitally important information contained in the Ten Tenets of Writing. Productivity in writing equals profitability in the publishing industry, but productivity doesn’t mean spending more time at a desk or hunched over a word processor. It means knowing how to accomplish more in less time, so that you have more time to enjoy life, and in turn possess the inclination to invest more hours into learning and doing more fascinating things, all of which gives you much more to write about.
To summarize a portion of the priceless information contained in this book, if you don’t know the Fourth Tenet of Writing, you’ll never be free to profitably write about any topic in the world that interests you. Rest assured, you’ll find the other nine tenets to be equally valuable, especially as you explore the productive connection between writing and talking, embrace the “Prime Directive” of every good writer, find out what to do with valuable but boring information, and discover how to take the pressure off the debilitating desire for over-editing and perfectionism.
This book also contains such enlightening information as the number of stages required to write a salable book, how to build marketability into your manuscript before typing a single word, and the basics of everything you need to know to dramatically increase your productivity, as well as soul-satisfying selections on how to transform the act of writing into a much more enjoyable experience.
Discover the creative differences between writing with pen & paper or using a keyboard, explore how magazine writing helps to produce the world’s best book writers, learn why good grammatical skills are not necessary to good writing, and find out why those who speak English as a Second Language possess certain writing advantages over native English speakers.
Thankfully, every one of the Ten Tenets of Writing is equally applicable to both fiction and nonfiction writing, and where one genre has an advantage over another, you’ll discover the benefits. For instance, find out why some nonfiction books have a much longer shelf-life than works of fiction and why the most profitable authors don’t hesitate to indulge in both types of writing.
The Writers’ Conference in a Book is the best foundation upon which to build your budding career as a writer, or to rejuvenate a previous career as an author, and it stands as one of the greatest liberators to free yourself from ever having to wait for inspiration to begin writing. In short, if you don’t know the Ten Tenets of Writing or understand the significance of these time-saving and talent-releasing truths, you don’t fully know how to think and write like a pro.
