From the back cover: Two hundred thought- and pen-provoking essays explore every aspect of the practice and process of writing -- from the pitfalls of perfectionism and "talking your book away" to daring to take risks (even when it feels like walking on aligators) and being receptive to the unconscious. Fresh, smart, and stimulating passages from a variety of writers (such as Anne Rice, Art Spiegelman, Diane Ackerman, Scott Turow, Toni Morrison, Vaclav Havel, and Camille Paglia) tame the terror of the bllank page wiht no-nonsense tips and delightfulyy diverse inspiration.
