I don’t know if I’ll ever have something of mine professionally published but it was very encouraging to read stories of how others have come to succeed professionally in their writing. I think this book is also encouraging for those who just enjoy writing and don’t intend on ever having anything published. I appreciated how many of the stories in the book were about the love of writing, not just the work in involves.
Chicken Soup for the Soul: Inspiration for Writers is definitely an enjoyable read and it has encouraged me to get back to writing for fun. Who knows, maybe I will have something published some day!
