      I found the book “Advice to Writers” written or compiled by Jon Winokur to be very inspirational. It’s basically a book filled with writing quotes from professional or published writers.

      It covers many topics about writing including; agents, characters, colleagues, critics, dialogue, discouragement when writing, editing, genres, grammar and usage, money, plagiarism, plot, punctuation, reading, success and failure as a writer,


      the writer’s life, work habits, writers block, why you write and much, much more inspirational and thought provoking quotes.

      This book is about writers for writers.

      I think this book should be given to every writer.

      I liked that it covered a lot of the different aspects of the writing life.

        This book is not only great inspiration but it’s also great to read to pass the time, especially if you have or experience writers block often.

        While there are many positive aspects to this book it also features a few negative aspects.

        I did not like that some of the quotes were a bit vulgar and offensive.

        are used in this book.

        Also, a lot of the quotes seemed to go against each other.

        While everyone has their own opinion about writing it got a little confusing when reading as there are many contradictions throughout the book.

        Overall, this is an excellent book for writers as long as you can get over the foul language and often contradictory statements.
