Book Review: A Writer on Writing by Sally Jenkins

Published: March 23rd, 2013
Publisher: Tango Press
Read from November 30th to December 4th, 2013
Synopsis from Goodreads:
A writer who earns money from his work is not merely a wordsmith. A profitable writer knows how to manage his time, produce ideas from a blank mind and create a web presence, plus many more things besides.
A Writer on Writing will introduce you to these and a range of other skills useful to anyone hoping to make cash from their words.
Using her feature articles that have appeared in the UK writing press, Sally Jenkins looks at:
The self-discipline needed to write and stay focussed
A method of getting ideas
Tips on writing flash fiction
How to choose an educational course to help with your writing
Tips on writing anniversary articles
Tips on creating a backup of your work
How to decide on pseudonym
How to create a good first impression with an editor
Tips on starting a blog
The benefits of a writing buddy
How to write a novel in a month!
Above all, this little book will inspire you to get writing!


This book is a collection of articles that the author has written about writing, and all of them are great. There are a wide variety of topics covered, and I found every one of them to contain great advice. Each article is also relatively short, so it's easy to just read one whenever you have a small bit of time instead of having to set aside a large chunk of time to have to read something. If you're interested in writing, then I would highly recommend checking this book out. It has a lot of great advice.
