My rating: 5 of 5 stars

“Teachers or writers who await mood and inspiration before beginning court trouble. Conversely, writers and teachers who create mood and inspiration by performing on demand tend to prosper.” (Kindle Locations 1181-1183)

 

No wonder this book from 1990 is still so widely cited. A great guide with useful and well-fundamented advice which generates a four step self-assessment and action-oriented approach to unblock writing while developing a sustainable writing practice. I wish I had read this a long time ago!
