By Dinty W. Moore
Every writer needs this book. We all feel lonely, uninspired, and discouraged sometimes—it's just a part of this crazy profession. The Mindful Writer is for those low moments. This little book is filled with the wisdom of many writers, plus Moore's practical and inspiring commentary. I revisit it when I'm looking for a nugget of wisdom, mindfulness, and joy. When you feel overwhelmed, imperfect, or bogged down in details, pick up this book and remind yourself that you write because you love to write—which is the most important thing to remember, anyway.
Note: You can get this book used at a low cost, but I believe Moore is coming out with a new version soon.
