How to Enjoy Writing

(1987)
A Book of Aid and Comfort
A non fiction book by

 
 
This book was written by my personal favorite author, Isaac Asimov and his wife, Janet. It purports to offer aid and comfort to the aspiring author, but in fact does neither. This is a loving collection by wife Janet of Isaac's essays and quotations. There are only 2 chapters written by Isaac himself. It is a useful book if you want a peek inside the mind of a genius writer. However, for us mere mortals, it offers little in the way of instruction on how to write. The first 4 chapters give the most beneficial albeit coursary advice on how to approach writing. The rest is anectodal information on what it's like to be a best selling author and the troubles you might face. If you're a beginning author these are the problems you dream of, but not the problems you need to solve to sell your first book.
