Letters to a Young Writer: Some Practical and Philosophical Advice

Read 2 times. Last read December 31, 2019 to January 13, 2020.
Inspired by Rainer Maria Rilke's 'Letters to a Young Poet', McCann's book contains lots of really helpful little gems for the young (and not so young) writer. The prose is fresh, honest and pleasantly surprising, and refreshingly free of tired old cliches like 'show don't tell'. Covers all the aspects of being a writer, from seeking inspiration to dealing with frustration and failure, finding an agent, not finding an agent, etc, etc.
