WANNABE A WRITER
Written by
JANE WENHAM JONES


It’s a tough life being a writer. The never being sure of knowing whether whatever it is you’ve written will ever get past your Auntie Maud. The hours locked away in the spare room (now somewhat grandly called “Your Office”), with little to show for it but a mountain of screwed up paper, empty wine glasses and chocolate bar wrappers from three months ago. All this and more are brought brilliantly and hilariously to light by author Jane Wenham-Jones in her new guide to successful writing, Wannabe A Writer?

 


Jane, a journalist and author of three successful novels, has compiled a book for all those wanting to enter the fragile world of writing, that never takes itself too seriously but, nevertheless, still offers solid advice for those wanting to start “the book they have inside them”.

With anecdotes and tips gleaned from such esteemed wordsmiths as Frederick Forsythe, Ian Rankin and Jilly Cooper, Jane Wenham-Jones has also instilled a great deal of her own wit to the guide, which concentrates almost entirely on those most vital of all ingredients to the writer … optimism and how to keep it. It even suggests what to wear to your own launch party. How’s that for confidence boosting?

Packed with pointers of what to – and what NOT to – do, Wannabe A Writer? by Jane Wenham-Jones is a must if for no other reason than for the fact that it never undervalues what all writing should be – whether for pleasure or profit – good fun above all else.
8/10
