This book is a must-have for any writer (or their support group). It studies the motivations of writers, and examines different styles of working and staying motivated.

After all, millions try to write and publish a book, but only a handful follow through, finish, and publish. So the motivation to keep plugging away is critical.

So much of the time, we don't understand the motivation to write a book. It's tossed off as a mystery, but here the author does a terrific job of helping us to understand
