Painfully honest and very funny instructional on how to keep writing and how to get published. (Hint: don't give up. Ever.) I plan to reread once yearly for inspiration.

The book is culled from a series of journal articles. Hence, there is a little repetition (especially regarding epic fantasy novels The White Dragon and The Destroyer Goddess), but not so much that I won't readily forgive Ms. Resnick and/or her editor for not doing a little judicious trimming.
