What I’m reading: The Writer’s Book

In The Writer’s Book, published more than 50 years ago by Barnes & Noble, the advice is still timely:

“…the best work…has always been done by people who were concerned only with pleasing themselves. Given a reasonable degree of competence in the mechanics of the craft, there is an audience, large or small, for anything that any of us writes to please himself, since none of us is unique.” — Richard Summers
