Reviews - What do customers think about Wannabe a Writer??
A 'must have' for any new writer May 25, 2008
This is the best book on the craft of writing that I've read since Stephen King's On Writing. Jane Wenham-Jones, whose bestsellers I love, covers every aspect of writing - getting started, genre, finding an agent, writing short stories and much more. Written with bags of humour and including hundreds of tips from other best selling authors, this is an invaluable tool in the novice writer's kit.
Confidently and enthusiastically recommended Nov 4, 2007
Writer professionally is a daunting task for the uninitiated. In a single and comprehensive volume, 'Writing Magazine' columnist Jane Wenham-Jones uses solid information liberally laced with humor to help aspiring writers figure out where they need to start, how they are to finish, and that eternal question besetting all ambitious authors: 'Will anyone ever publish it when you have?' in "Wannabe A Writer?". This thoroughly 'reader friendly' instruction manual is as informed and informative as it is entertainingly demystifying. "Wannabe A Writer?" features a wealth of practical tips and insights on writing and getting published from a number of successful authors, professional literary agents, and commercial publishers. Of special note is the section 'Novels Are Not The Only Fruit' which examines writing as therapy, writing as revenge, words of warning, memoirs and life stories, other non-fiction, and a great deal more. Practical, accessible, written with flair and humor, Jane Wenham-Jones' "Wannabe A Writer?" is confidently and enthusiastically recommended to the attention of anyone who aspires to a professional career as a writer -- or simply can't help themselves from expressing thoughts on paper where other folk can read them!
