The worst thing you can do is to get stuck rewriting and rewriting chapter 1. Just keep forging ahead.

I don't get writer's block because I don't believe in it. I believe you sit down in front of the computer and force your fingers to get something on the screen. If it takes all day and you only type one sentence that's OK. The important thing is to move forward. My attitude is I'm a professional. I show up for work every day and do my job.

Everyone gets started the same way- you sit down and write.

Full of useful information for the writer who wants his/her work published. Because Janet Evanovich co-authored it, there's that sassy, dry wit at play as well. Very fun. No major ah-ha's content-wise, but she shares her own approaches and provides examples from her publishing experiences. That's alone is worth your reading time. There's no discussion about online book publishing. So if you're only looking for advice on that this isn't the book for you.

The interview format often takes on the tone of her Plum novels. So you find yourself chuckling often and contemplating the need to buy a personal copy so you can highlight the advice that's pertinent to you.

It's a quick read that you'll find taught you a lot and may even help you overcome your own writer's issues.
