There's No Such Thing as Writer's Block

Autor Grossman, Mr Gene
en Limba Engleză Paperback
I've written almost 50 books, of which 20 are a series of mysteries, and I've never suffered from what they call writer's block, for one main reason: I don't sit down at my computer intending to write until I have something to say... and the only thing that slows me down isn't not having something to say, it's trying to figure out the best way to say it. I don't claim to be able to sit down and instantly think of things to say, having not thought about it previously, unless I'm writing a non-fiction book on a subject I know like the back of my hand... and then I'm like an old performer that opens up the refrigerator door and when the light goes on, I do a half-hour. Not everyone has something to say, but still wants to write a book because there's a story in them fighting to get out, so the purpose of this book about there being no such thing as writer's block is what I have done to eliminate it from my writing process, and can help others to do the same. I don't plan to sit down and force myself to write every day for a set amount of hours just to get a certain amount of words onto the screen: I have a mental process I practice that gives me things to say so that I can't wait to get to my desk to start them flying into the computer at a rate of over 75 words a minute, of which more than half are typos... but at least they're on the paper, and for corrections - well, that's what editors were born for. I also go into a lot of things 'not' to do, and discuss the pros and cons of also doing a book in the audio format, for distributors like Audible.com Overall, I believe that this book covers things that the writing courses don't touch upon, because I never heard about them in the writing classes I attended. This book is the perfect book for any person that wants to write a book, and can also help writers already in the process that are having some problems along the way. It's also a fine gift for any friend or relative that has expressed a desire to write, or someone with a personality and imagination you respect that you feel should be writing a book but needs a little push... or a book like this to get them started... and I sincerely believe that all it takes to put out a decent book is to be full of baloney, and a good typist. And if you can't type, there are some pretty good voice recognition programs out there, and as for being 'full of it, ' well, I really don't know anyone that isn't. Just keep in mind that even though person thinks they've never written a book, they've actually been writing two of them since the day they learned how to talk, and the titles of those two books are, "Things I wished I'd never said," and "Things I wished I would have said," and that means they're already on the way to Amazon.com
