This is the only book you need to get started. With no writing prompts, time-wasting exercises or bumper-sticker adages, this book teaches you what I call writing with intent, a clear path to getting your work done to your – and the reader’s – delight. Start with reading it, as step one of a five-step path you can take with me. It may very well be all you need, or so thousands of readers tell me.
Irreverent, funny, and written from the perspective of someone who started her career at The New York Times and went on to write and publish four mass-market books, read her essays on NPR’s All Things Considered and write op-eds and essays for some of the best publications in the world — and wants to teach you to do the same — this book was written with you in mind.
