Praise

“A MARVELOUSLY PRAGMATIC INITIATION TO THE ART OF WRITING.”
—DOROTHY ALLISON
Author of Bastard Out of Carolina

“[A] SUCCINCT AND WARMHEARTED AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL MEDITATION ON THE WRITING LIFE.”
—Publishers Weekly

“Terry Brooks is adamant about dedicating oneself to the craft, while showing awe and humility for the creative process. . . . Every serious writer should refer to this book regularly for inspiration as well as solid crafting advice.”
—ELIZABETH ENGSTROM CRATTY
Director, Maui Writers Retreat

“A wise, warm-hearted book—part autobiography, part how-to-do-it manual, with some amazingly candid behind-the-scenes material . . . Fantasy fans, novice writers, and even veteran pros will learn plenty from it.”
—ROBERT SILVERBERG
Award-winning author of
the Majipoor Chronicles
