This is not a book about writing techniques or "markets," but rather, it is about what the hell to do with your life if you're a writer, or, what the hell to do with the non-writing parts. The book offer advice on how to organize your time so you can write, set boundaries with family members or co-workers who might secretly resent the "alone time" required to create, overcome writer's block, keep track of helpful contacts, and more. Rachel Simon, herself a published novelist, lays out her answers. And while she perhaps assumes too much naiveté on the part of her readers, the book is still practical and affirming.
