The Courage to Write: How Writers Transcend Fear by Ralph Keyes

Katherine Anne Porter called courage the first essential for a writer. E.B. White said that he admired anyone who has the guts to write anything at all. InThe Courage to Write, Ralph Keyes assures us that anxiety is felt by writers at every level, especially when they dare to do their best. He describes the sequence of courage points through which all writers must pass, from the challenge of identifying a worthwhile project to the mixture of pride and panic they feel when examining a newly published book or article. Keyes also offers specifics on how to root out dread of public performance and of the judgment of family and friends, make the best use of writers workshops and conferences, and handle criticism of works in progress. Throughout, he includes the comments of many accomplished writers on how they transcended their own fears to produce great works. This invaluable book is essential reading for anyone who wishes to learn how to write well.
