Writing, like any form of art, contains a bit of science. For all of the creativity and ingenuity involved, there a basic skill set required to obtain at least some success.
Also, like any art form, there are many experts with varying suggestions and ideas on how to achieve that success.
The 2010 book, Views from the Loft: A Portable Writer’s Workshop, was inspired by The Loft Literary Center. Edited by Daniel Slager, the book is about more than just writing. The abundant knowledge that exists within the book exudes comes from the writers who have achieved the dream that many of us would dearly love to call reality. Bringing in multiple writers in various stages of writing, this book encourages its reader to continue to write, even when obstacles get in their way.
I really enjoyed this book. When it comes to books about writing, there are many to choose from. I liked this book because it just spoke to me about writing. Yes, it’s difficult, time-consuming and earning your living solely by your pen (or computer) is not guaranteed, but in the end, it is always worth it.
I recommend it.
