All writers who are published or hopeful to be or even just a daily journaler will enjoy Áine Greaney’s book, Writer with a Day Job: Inspiration & Exercises to Help You Craft a Writing Life Alongside Your Career.
Áine joins Beverly Stoddart for a conversation about her book that gives a way forward for those who want to write and are encumbered with a day job or even those who just want a how-to to make their writing better with reviewing and revising their work. It’s a fun, informative read that helps you to “clear your throat before you can sing,” also save you from the dreaded overused adverb, choose or not to join a writer’s group, and make your characters, “move and talk and twitch: all at the same time.”
Spend some time learning how to make your writing better. Enjoy!
