You won't actually find bandages or medicine in More Writer's First Aid. But in 48 short chapters, you will find cures for dealing with disappointment and jealousy, writing despite physical and emotional pain, banishing procrastination once and for all, and combining writing with parenting (from infancy to adulthood.) "We're all in this together" has been Kristi's constant reminder to readers of her first book and her blog. (Read sample chapters below in the Contents.)
Kristi has had nearly 40 books published in 30 years of writing, taught writing for the Institute of Children's Literature for more than 25 years, and has guided, mentored and taught hundreds of aspiring writers (both as an instructor and blogger for more than 55,000 subscribers.) "I started writing on an Iowa farm, very isolated, with no Internet and no other writers around," Kristi says. "It's not about how talented you are--and it's not who you know--that gets you published. Most often the published writers are simply those writers who refused to quit. I can help you persevere until you publish."
In addition to the uplifting encouragement you found in Kristi’s first book for writers, More Writer’s First Aid e-book includes:
