Mugging the Muse: Writing Fiction for Love AND Money (review)

Recently read “Mugging the Muse: Writing Fiction for Love AND Money” by Holly Lisle.

Found myself very impressed with this book. Holly Lisle is a professional writer who actually makes a living writing full time ( as opposed to many of us who also have day jobs) and she has a lot of practical information about how to do this, as well as some good exercises that you can do to hone your skills and lots of links to resources that will be helpful if you want to write professionally. She also includes stories about her own journey as a writer, including mistakes that she made that you can avoid because of her example. I admire someone who’s not afraid to expose her “less-than-perfect” side, especially to be of help to others.

Good book, good fun and well worth reading. Even though I’ve got a preference for physical books, I’d recommend picking up the e-book on this one, as she’s got lots of useful links that are easier to access in this format.

Check out “Mugging the Muse: Writing Fiction for Love AND Money” by Holly Lisle. Four and a half out of five stars (yes, I really liked it)
