comfort for writers

If you haven’t yet read The Writer’s Room, a series of interviews with well-known Australian writers by Charlotte Wood, I can highly recommend it. I seem to be one of the last to the party here, as other writing friends have been reading these interviews in an e-magazine, and telling me how inspiring they are, for ages. But for whatever reason, I hadn’t read these amazing interviews until I bought the book (released August 2016).

If you procrastinate terribly, you’ll read about other writers who do, too. If you doubt yourself constantly, you’ll find authors who feel just the same. If you’d like a sneak peek into how published writers go about their work – the actual nitty gritties of when they start, when they stop, how much cake they eat (okay I made that part up) – it’s all here.

If you want to read more, here’s an interview that Charlotte Wood gave about how the insights she gained changed her approach to writing her most recent book, The Natural Way of Things, at this link.

  1. I want to hear more about cake 🙂 I can definitely relate to that part. And many thanks for sharing. It sounds like a great read.

  2. Well let me tell you about cake … yesterday I made a carrot cake with cream cheese icing, and I’m sure it helped my writing flow 🙂

    Yes, it really is a wonderful book … well worth reading.

  3. I want to read this book, too. If Charlotte Wood benefitted from what these authors had to say, then that’s good enough endorsement for me! 🙂
