Want to Be a Writer BUT...
Afraid to Get Started? 

Working Georgia writers offer individual perspective on why or how they write.  Some give advice, some give their story about how they became writers.   

Not a tutorial, this book is a thought-provoking easy read that may help you get past the common obstacle that keeps so many good writers from even getting started
