This inspiring book helps writers learn to avoid those negative things struggling writers often say or think. This book lists 299 of this things writers often say, although they shouldn't, and lists what writers really should be saying in place of these negative thoughts. For example, instead of "I wish that my novel were already written," a writer should think, "I am looking forward to the experience of writing my novel." And instead of thinking, "Maybe I could self-publish, but that would feel like such a failure," the writer should think, "Self-publishing is no disgrace and sometimes it's exactly the right answer. Self-publishing is an option." And instead of "I would like to secretly kidnap and torture a literary agent," a writer should be thinking, "Literary agents represent projects that they think they can sell. Nothing could be less mysterious or more impersonal." The short thoughts can help writers with motivation, time management, writer's block, mis-information and positive think. Write Mind is a good psychological booster for struggling writers.
