What It Contains

How you as a writer shape those words and showcase them in a professional way is what this book is all about. "The Writer's Book of Wisdom" derives it's authority from the craft of storytelling, which, for the last three centuries, has been exercised by novelists and short story writers. It is twofold: first if you have mastered the skills needed to write a book, you can almost write just about anything! And, second, that no matter what type of writing genre you use, all writing is made of storytelling.

This book contains a wealth of information by providing the aspiring writer with inspiring quotes, here are just a few examples of my favorite quotes that are in the book as well:

"When you must sit, it should only be to play a musical instrument, to watch your children, to look out upon the fashioned expanse of your manual labors, to eat your meals, or to write." (on rule#15, Generating text)

-Baxter S. Marbury

"Inspiration? A hoax that poets have invented to give themselves importance." (on rule#4, True inspiration must be earned by writing).

-Jean Anouilh
