Volunteering in our local schools, I’m amazed by the ability of many of the students to create meaningful stories and articles. Some express a desire to write professionally in the future. Thankfully, for budding Christian writers, multi-published author Donna Clark Goodrich has created an excellent resource.
In A Step in the Write Direction, Goodrich has compiled helpful information on many aspects of publishing:
- How to get started,
- Where to get ideas,
- Manuscript formats,
- Fiction writing, nonfiction, poetry, and more
- Editing tips,
- How to sell what you write,
- How to tackle obstacles,
and helpful resources all writers need. I’ve been writing almost ten years and I found information within this book’s pages I could put to good use. A variety of “Assignments” help the reader learn more about her motivation to write, compile a list of important resources, spark inspiration, and more.
What I loved most about this book is Goodrich’s encouraging style. Her passion for writing and helping others become successful writers shines through on every page. If you’re serious about a writing career, pick up a copy of this book to help you get started. If you’re already writing with the goal of being published, A Step in the Write Direction can help guide you along the way.
I received a copy of this book from the author. This review contains my honest opinions, for which I was not compensated in any way.
