My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I purchased the Kindle version of Jordan E. Rosenfeld’s wonderful A Writer’s Guide to Persistence but now I need to own it in physical form, too. I want to see it on my bookshelf, its spine available at a glance to remind me that here is a resource to help me through anything related to writing.

In twenty-five short chapters, Rosenfeld provides a wealth of information and inspiration. After reading it all the way through, now I can revisit it more slowly, with the chapters I need at whatever stage I am at in my process. On days when the writing is not flowing, Chapter 10: “Break The Blocks to Creative Flow.” When I feel envy when another writer obtains a milestone, Chapter 18: “Alleviate Envy.” All the chapters seem to be here, and they can also serve as jumping off points to other books and resources, many of which Rosenfeld references or suggests ways of finding.
