Just Write It
Can you survive in publishing genre fiction if you don't outline, if you go AWOL from character interviews, if you go cross-eyed at color-keyed plot charts, and if you would rather clean a sewer than write a synopsis?

Whether you're indie, traditional or hybrid, the answer is yes. A veteran bestselling author shares how she's survived and thrived through more than 60 books and 30 years in publishing.

USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn, who has taught writing from London to Melbourne, Australia to Washington, D.C., presents practical, proven and hard-won tips and tools for those who don't write "right."

Word Watch: A Writer's Guide to the Slippery, Sneaky and Otherwise Tricky.

Word Watch does for the common man or woman what Theodore Bernstein's The Careful Writer does for the scholarly intellectual. Far more extensive than Bernstein, having been created over the course of years, it's a valuable reference and a good read rolled into one." – 5-star review

"Keep it handy on your desk. Take it along for casual browsing ... Read four or five entries a day to give your brain a good workout -- and your spirit a good laugh." –
