Kristi has had nearly 40 books published in 30 years of writing, taught writing for the Institute of Children’s Literature for more than 25 years, and has guided, mentored and taught hundreds of aspiring writers (both as an instructor and blogger for more than 55,000 subscribers.) “I started writing on an Iowa farm, very isolated, with no Internet and no other writers around,” Kristi says. “It’s not about how talented you are–and it’s not who you know–that gets you published. Most often the published writers are simply those writers who refused to quit. I can help you persevere until you publish.”
In addition to the uplifting encouragement you found in Kristi’s first book for writers, More Writer’s First Aid includes:
- eight more articles (48 versus 40) to inspire you [See Contents below]
- a new “family matters” section on combining writing with parenting children from birth to adulthood
- advice on current time management issues like e-mail and information overload
- portability for today’s modern reader–keep it handy on your computer’s desktop
- live links within the chapters leading to referenced books, classes, websites, and authors
