We're all writers here. We write blog posts of varying nature, whether it's to review a book or talk about our personal experiences that we feel may enrich our readers' day or lives, whether it's to give them a good laugh or something more. Sometimes, the process of writing and sharing is our own way of relieving our minds, maybe even our hearts. Whatever we put out there, we want it to read well. It may not be the best poetry or prose, but we create something to the best of our abilities.

 

Which is why HELP! FOR WRITERS is perfect for us all.

 

And there's going to be a blog tour!  The tour is for September 16 - 27. 

 

You can do reviews and giveaways, and the author is only very glad to participate.

 

He is willing to do 5 Guest Posts and 5 Q&As. 

 

If you're interested in signing up for this tour, you can do so here:

Here are more details about the book.

 

HELP! FOR WRITERS

By Roy Peter Clark

 

 

The craft of writing offers countless potential problems: The story is too long; the story's too short; revising presents a huge hurdle; writer's block is rearing its ugly head.

In HELP! FOR WRITERS, Roy Peter Clark presents an "owner's manual" for writers, outlining the seven steps of the writing process, and addressing the 21 most urgent problems that writers face. In his trademark engaging and entertaining style, Clark offers ten short solutions to each problem. Out of ideas? Read posters, billboards, and graffiti. Can't bear to edit yourself? Watch the deleted scenes feature of a DVD, and ask yourself why those scenes were left on the cutting-room floor. HELP! FOR WRITERS offers 210 strategies to guide writers to success.
