Summary Unlike "how to write" books that dwell on the angst and the agony of the trade, Writing Brave and Free is upbeat and accessible. The focus here is the work itself: how to get started and how to keep going, and never is heard a discouraging word such as "no," "not," or "never." Because of the wealth of their experience, the authors can offer the sort of practical publishing advice that novices need and yet rarely find. Organized in brief, user-friendly chapters-on everything from sensory details to a work environment, from creating suspense to revising and taking criticism-the book allows aspiring (and practicing) writers to dip in anywhere and find something of value.
