'The Complete Writer' - a worthwhile addition to a new writer's library
by Michael Meanwell

The world is filled with business books for writers, covering every conceivable industry and expertise. But what if you are a new scribe who is uncertain what to write or which area to specialize in?

"The Complete Writer: A Guide To Tapping Your Full Potential" is a good place to start.

For a relatively small volume, it covers a lot of ground, addressing areas as diverse as newspaper and magazine freelancing, authoring and publishing as well as marketing, networking and the writing life. The small, bite-sized chapters make it easy to grab a slice of information or inspiration any time you need it.

Needless to say, a book that covers this amount of territory cannot cover it in great depth. But that's not the purpose of this guide, in my opinion. It's job is to whet the appetite and to inform. Other more specialized manuals can then provide more detailed information on the nuts and bolts of a particular pursuit.

"The Complete Writer" is written by four female published writers of different backgrounds with distinct viewpoints.

Joyce Faulkner, a writer and novelist with an MBA and engineering background, offers practical advice on how scribes can use tech tools to enhance their business.

Pat McGrath Avery, an experienced publisher, shares tips on commercial writing and editing.

While Beverly Walton-Porter, online editor and author, considers the business side of freelancing, from querying to marketing to publication.

Mindy Phillips Lawrence, author, editor and poet, addresses other important but often overlooked areas of empowerment.

Many of the chapters were originally published by online writers' resources, and

One area of particular interest is the writing life. "The Complete Writer" takes a holistic approach to the profession, offering solid advice on dealing with writers' block, time management, creativity and stress relief.

"The Complete Writer" is written in a simple, accessible language that can be understood and applied by writers at any level. At the very least, this book acts like a signpost - or a series of signposts - pointing you in any number of directions to enhance your skills and further your career.

If you want detailed, step-by-step information and advice, however, it's best to read more comprehensive, specialist tomes.

"I'd recommend the book for writing classes and seminars"
THE COMPLETE WRITER is a well-written and useful guide for beginning and experienced writers of any genre. The authors explain the hows and whys of publishing, from writing the first draft to querying and preparing the manuscript for publishers. From their combined experiences in writing and publishing, the authors know what information to include. They write directly to the reader. Reading this book is like listening to them personally. They really know their stuff. I’d recommend the book as a text for writing classes and seminars as well as a useful tool for any writer.

-- Ellen Gray Massey, teacher/advisor of Bittersweet, The Ozark Quarterly and editor of subsequent publications, Bittersweet Country, Bittersweet Earth, The Bittersweet Ozarks at a Glance, and other fiction and non-fiction books, stories, and articles.

...readable and practical information for writers...
A book filled with readable and practical information for writers. Written by four different authors with diverse backgrounds and viewpoints, it offers valuable advice to any writer. The book covers a broad range of topics from writing and freelancing to self-publishing and marketing.

-- Dan Poynter, The Self-Publishing Manual.
