Successful writers write, rather than think about writing, talk about writing, or plan what they'll write when the kids are on vacation, they finish that big project at work, or they get a cabin in the woods. Yet even accomplished writers sometimes get "blocked," losing access to their in-the-zone writing mind. Steve O'Keefe offers proven techniques and practices for jump-starting stalled ideas and words honed in his years of working in virtually every aspect of publishing. Innovative, often unconventional exercises get readers writing and accessing their own unique, personal voice. Editing tips and tools polish and push past stuck points in plot, dialog, and description. Every aspect of pitching, proposals, and finding the right people for a project at a publication or publisher is discussed. Containing a career's worth of writing and publishing savvy, Set the Page on Fire is the kind of nuts and bolts coaching and inspirational encouragement invaluable to novice and veteran writers alike.
