An excellent book for the beginning writer

Live to Write Another Day: A Survival Guide for Screenwriters and Creative StorytellersLive to Write Another Day: A Survival Guide for Screenwriters and Creative Storytellers by Dean Orion
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Dean Orion has been writing for a long time and he shares his years of experience and techniques for survival in this indispensable book.

Life for a writer is hard. There are people out there who don't have the "writer's gene" and therefore, can never understand how writers think and what they go through. Orion shares techniques he has used over the years, not just with dealing with those who don't have the writer's gene, but also others who do. Though it sounds like Orion writes mostly screenplays, he has something in this book for every writer. Though mostly for newer writers, even people who have read a multitude of books on the subject can learn something new from Orion. Mostly, this is an excellent resource for beginners.
