Wendy Dager''s nonfiction humor book, A Discouraging Word: True tales of rejection, dejection and unnatural selection in the world of writing is now a project on the creative funding site Kickstarter!

A DISCOURAGING WORD: True tales of rejection, dejection and unnatural selection in the world of writing is an upcoming nonfiction humor book about the not-so-sunny side of writing by me, award-winning—meaning I once won a hoodie in a beer-themed haiku contest—writer Wendy Dager

I have many crazy/funny/outrageous/horrifying writing industry-related stories that I simply have to share with you. If you’re a writer, I bet you, too, have a few good (meaning bad) stories. That’s why I want you to be part of A DISCOURAGING WORD. My only rule is that your writing-related anecdote be absolutely true . And, preferably, funny. Also brief, no more than a paragraph. So that’s three rules. But, hey, publishers, agents and editors don’t have to follow ANY rules, so my three little ones aren’t going to kill you. 

I'm seeking funding for this project on Kickstarter. Check out the details and the video--in which I talk about the pitfalls of writing, do dramatic recreations of actual writing-related events in my life and clean up dog poo--here!
