How Writer’s Fail… How To Avoid Some Failures…

A Writing Book By Kris…

How Writers Fail… Analysis and Solutions by Kristine Kathryn Rusch.

I know a lot of you liked the post about failure must be an option in writing. So to help on that topic, I would highly suggest that as you plan to restart and get going in 2024, you grab this book. This a blunt, straight-forward book that might save your career or at least help you head off some really, really ugly bumps in the road in the coming year. It is focused at indie writers. (If you are headed toward traditional publishing, you have already failed.)

Here is the sales copy…

“Everyone fails at times. Writers fail in predictable ways—ways both foreseeable and preventable.

In this WMG Writer’s Guide, New York Times bestselling and award-winning author Kristine Kathryn Rusch addresses the pitfalls writers face and offers solutions to help them overcome those obstacles.

Because the best writers push through their challenges to ultimately find success, as Rusch brilliantly illustrates in these real-world examples.”

Business and writing and so much more are in this, including a bunch of just trashing myths around all kinds of beliefs that hurt writers. I would grab this book and read it as you plan for your writing and business in 2024. You will be glad you did.

You can get this amazing book in an electronic edition at… WMG Books

    What stands out most, for me, from this post, Dean, is this sentence: (If you are headed toward traditional publishing, you have already failed.)

    You have proven this to be true many times over. What is chilling is taking a minute to ponder the many ways traditional publishers have become nothing more than grifters and shysters.
