Usually, bedtime reading is my favorite but be warned: Sage Cohen's new book Fierce on the Page should only be read during your fully awake hours. After reading the first few pages, I couldn't fall sleep because I had to write. In more than 70 short and beautiful essays, Cohen delves into every aspect of a writer's psychological, emotional and creative journey.
Each essay is a gem filled with a story and loving guidance for how to take the next brave step into your writing life. You can read a page or two before diving into a writing session or read the whole book in order. Beware: you will lust for writing after reading this book.
