Great Book for Any Writer; Must-Read for Newbies Mar 9, 2004
I have had this book for several years, and refer to it almost everytime I start to write a query letter for an article. (If you don't know what a query letter is, you will definitely appreciate Cork's book!)
Cork's writing style is very easy to read, and is entertaining as well as informative. His examples are helpful, and I find him to be extremely encouraging and even inspirational.
I'm just about to get my first book published. "From Burned Out to Fired Up: A Woman's Guide to Rekindling Her Passion for Work and Life" (HCI Books, due out 6/04) and I wouldn't have gotten an agent no less a publisher without Cork's writing class and his helpful book. (Cork teaches a wonderful writing class through the Santa Barbara Community College at the Schott Center in Santa Barbara which I highly recommend.)
Good luck with your writing, and don't give up. Take a writing class, join (or start) a writer's group, and just keep writing. And read Cork's book. I hope it will help you as much as it has helped me.
