Praise

"This isn't a 'how-to' book about writing. It's a book about how to be a writer. How to prepare yourself–holistically, mentally, and spiritually–to take on a project that exists entirely in your head. How to develop the fortitude to believe in yourself and your project for the years it may take to write." —Garth Stein, international best-selling author of The Art of Racing in the Rain and A Sudden Light

"William Kenower is as charismatic on the page as he is in person, and in Fearless Writing he has distilled his wisdom down to its electrifying essence. This is a book that any writer will cherish and learn from." —David Laskin, New York Times best-selling author of The Children's Blizzard and The Family

"William Kenower's book, culled from years of association with writing and writers, will give new writers inspiration or perhaps even a much-needed kick in the pants. Established writers will be moved by its obvious love and excitement of the writing process. In all instances, it reminds writers of the importance–and necessity–of their work." —Thrity Umrigar, author of The Story Hour and The World We Found

"Whether you're a fledgling writer or a veteran with years of experience, fearlessness (that elusive blend of self-acceptance, confidence, and curiosity) is the defining quality of those who find fulfillment and success. Truly fearless authors banish writer's blocks with ease, receive critiques gracefully, and infuse their passion for the craft into every word they write. Filled with insightful wisdom and practical advice, Fearless Writing: How to Create Boldly and Write with Confidence by William Kenower (who is a popular blogger and sought-after writing teacher and has inspired writers for many year) teaches aspiring writers how to thrive as a writer, no matter their genre or career path. Fearless Writing shows how to: Find and enter a Flow state in which writing is a natural, deeply satisfying process; Quiet both internal and external critics and embrace the inherent value in your work; Use love, emotional engagement, and curiosity as the guiding principles for what you write and how you share it with others; Overcome rejection, procrastination, and other obstacles that stifle literary creativity. From the blank page to the first draft, and from querying to marketing, the writing life is filled with challenges, roadblocks, and new experiences. Fearless Writing is an indispensable, 'real world practical', instructional reference for building a lifelong literary career in the process." –James A. Cox at Midwest Book Review
