For the first time, you'll find quotations about writing organized by and keyed to real questions writers and authors ask.from How do I get started? to Why do writers write, anyway? to What do I do about writer's block to Where do you get your ideas and 16 more. Authors' voices are heard here that appear in no other collection of writing quotes-lots of women, many recent writers-nearly 6,000 quotations. They offer at times whimsical, clever, witty, at times serious, and helpful insights into the writing game collected and organized by someone who has been in this game for three decades-writing, editing, publishing, consulting.Quotes are small gems of wisdom that I wish I had thought of. Some wise, some funny, some profound, but all enlightening. I only wish I had more room on my computer for more of the quotes from Karen Speerstra's clever book, QUESTIONS WRITERS ASK... This is a must-have book for any writer's library. ~Sue Viders, Author of Deal a Story (Card game) and HEROES AND HEROINES.
