The Writer’s Book of Hope is an excellent antidote to the discouragement toxins that build up in writers over time. Actually, it’s a whole medicine cabinet of antidotes. Anxiety, Frustration, and Despair are part of the emotional experience of all writers, from beginners to established professionals, and Keyes offers a wide range of uplifting and motivating perspectives that will help writers to keep doing the work that nourishes them. This volume is every bit as good as Keyes’s previous title, The Courage to Write. Both are highly recommended.
