For Writers, Roy Peter Clark presents an "owner's manual" for writers, outlining the seven steps of the writing process, and addressing the 21 most urgent problems that writers face.
In his trademark engaging and entertaining style, Clark offers 10 short solutions to each problem. Out of ideas? Read posters, billboards, and graffiti. Can't bear to edit yourself? Watch the deleted scenes feature of a DVD, and ask yourself why those scenes were left on the cutting-room floor. Help! For Writers offers 210 strategies to guide writers to success.

Impossible to listen to

Read by the author, he may know how to write (one supposes so, since he is giving advice), but he certainly should learn to read. Boring voice, boring pace, absolutely impossible to listen to. I want my money back!
