Whether You Live to Write or Write to Live, This is the Book for You… Wanderings on Writing is not just a “how to write book.” It’s also a window into how one writer has managed to fit writing in around the demands of “real” life. Over fifty essays address topics as diverse as hooking a reader, presenting conflict, creating vivid characters, and research strategies. Throughout, Lindskold provides examples of the unique challenges faced by writers of science fiction and fantasy. Lindskold also examines less commonly addressed topics, such as making time to write and organizing a developing project. Jane Lindskold is a New York Times bestselling, award-winning author. She has had published over twenty novels and sixty-some short stories, as well as numerous works of non-fiction. “I adore Jane Lindskold’s writing. Her novels are a rarity for me – fat, engrossing novels that still don’t seem long enough.” Charles deLint “Lindskold is a writer with strong world-building skills and a knack for intricate yet comprehensible plots.” Romantic Times BOOKreviews “The characterization is superb, the plotting swift, and the prose a pleasure to read.” VOYA on Child of a Rainless Year
