A year of writing dangerously : 365 days of inspiration & encouragement
Abercrombie, Barbara.

Summary: Barbara Abercrombie, a successful author and longtime writing teacher, knows that "there's always a sense of risk when you write -- fear that maybe someone will deny your version of things, or they'll get mad and disown you, or maybe you'll make a fool of yourself." Writing, she's found, "will always feel dangerous." But she's also found that writers need to write. How to wrestle with this dilemma? Abercrombie asserts that "determination is an inside job, but inspiration comes from the outside," and it is needed day in and day out. She provides a delightfully varied cornucopia of just such inspiration here -- nuts-and-bolts solutions, hand-holding commiseration, and epiphany-fueling insights from fellow writers, including Nobel Prize winners and Abercrombies' own students, who have gone from paralyzed to published.
