Books By Author Gail Sher


UK Kirkus Review » Most readers know that good books can bewitch for hours, but established writers know that words on the page don't happen by magic - that one per cent of inspiration must be matched by 99 per cent perspiration. In an age when communication skills are at a premium, this is a useful little book which reminds the reader of some basic truths about writing. Its maxims seem self-evident: that writers write; that writing is a process; that you don't know what your writing will be until the end of the process; and that if writing is your practice, the only way to fail is to not write. Sher takes her reader through some common blocks to writing, her approach painfully simple, almost simplistic, but scattered here are enough insights for those who find writing hard to make it worth a read.
