Description
Crammed with crucial facts, ideas and warnings never before brought together into clear focus, this guide is not only fun to read, but also work-boots practical. Not only inspiring, but pinch-penny accurate. Not only optimistic, but report-card candid. Not only kindly, but tattle-tale frank. It is an energizing tonic for writers' weary brain cells. Every writer is important. "Creative Writing For People Who Can't Not Write" is a book for every writer.

Topics in this lively blend of advice, inspiration and scholarly wit include: the wonder of creativity; getting published, paid and read; why writing should be impossible; how to avoid looking foolish in print; a sugar-coated history of the whimsical, word-rich English language; the nature of poetry; the sixteen writer-type temperaments; reflections from contemporary writers on their work; a first-ever collation of pages of advice from C.S. Lewis.

C.S. Lewis once wrote to Lindskoog, "If you understand me so well, you will understand other authors, too." Writers who read "Creative Writing For People Who Can't Not Write" will agree with Lewis' assessment of Kathryn Lindskoog's insight into the writing life. And this book also passes Lindskoog's own test: "A good writer is a graceful guest in a reader's brain."
