About this title


Discusses the creativity process and the difficulties writers may encounter, including rejection, writer's block, and self-promotion


Repeated rejection. Writer's block. Isolation. Alcoholism. Day jobs. Criticism. Low self-esteem. Narcissism. Addictions. Writing poorly. Poverty. Arrogance. Depression. A writer's life tends to invite all of the above, and more. In Living the Writer's Life, therapist and writer Eric Maisel, who specializes in counseling writers, sets out to "help you handle the many obstacles and challenges that come with the writing life." Books about writing commonly broach these types of issues as inevitabilities that writers must learn to deal with. Maisel's book shows you how. Through the use of role playing, personal anecdotes (one contributor writes about the value of earning an M.F.A. later in life), multiple-choice questions, quizzes, topical comments from renowned writers, and other models, Maisel encourages his readers to avoid the pitfalls of the writer's life. This is a serious workbook that can be used by writers (and other creative types, with little adjustments here and there) individually, in pairs, or in groups. --Jane Steinberg
