Synopsis

This sympathetically funny parody self-help book for writers is filled with hilariously misguided tips, factual-looking charts and other advice that knowingly pokes fun at writerly foibles while still cheering would be authors on. With this book, struggling writers can find suggestions for effective paragraph shapes, tips on where to find inspiration (in your reflection, in the shapes of gum stuck to the ground, in a consultation with your doctor), thoughtful poses for author photos, pull-out procrastination excuses, the Elements of Style (literary fashion tips), investment strategies for the super-rich and famous, and more. How to Success is filled with enough almost-helpful advice to keep aspiring writers amused, unblocked, and on their way.
