Do you remember playing truth or dare as a child? The way your heart would pound when it was your turn, when you were called upon to dredge up a truth inside yourself, or dared to push yourself beyond your comfort zone? In this wonderful book, I Dare You to Be a Writer, Rochelle Jewel Shapiro will get your heart pounding, too. She gently encourages you to find your own truth as a writer, to dare yourself to step out of your comfort zone and into your greatest creativity. This book is filled with fabulous practical tips on how to energize your writing and hone your craft, but it also reminds you to attend to your inner world as a writer. Shapiro is a generous, deeply knowing guide through both the artistic and spiritual landscapes of the writing journey. You will leave this book feeling enriched, inspired, and full of literary derring-do. Gayle Brandeis is the author of Fruitflesh: Seeds of Inspiration for Women Who Write, and several award-winning novels, including The Book of Dead Birds, which won Barbara Kingsolver's Bellwether Prize for Fiction of Social Engagement.
