About this title

Synopsis:

This inspirational guide for aspiring and experienced writers was originally published in 1997. Written in a friendly, hopeful, and gently humorous tone, it focuses on the creative process and emotional ups and downs of the creative life, providing insights into how to persist in the face of rejection, frustration, feelings of inadequacy, lack of support from loved ones, and more. It also offers practical how-to advice, from organizing your time so you actually sit down and write to reading as a writer. This ebook's rerelease of The Writer's Survival Guide includes a new introduction that discusses the origins of the book and how, in spite of the many changes in publishing and technology, it remains relevant today.

Review:

This is not a book about writing techniques or "markets," but rather, it is about what the hell to do with your life if you're a writer, or, what the hell to do with the non-writing parts. The book offer advice on how to organize your time so you can write, set boundaries with family members or co-workers who might secretly resent the "alone time" required to create, overcome writer's block, keep track of helpful contacts, and more. Rachel Simon, herself a published novelist, lays out her answers. And while she perhaps assumes too much naiveté on the part of her readers, the book is still practical and affirming.
