Being a writer can mean navigating a lonely and confusing path. Bad Choices can help make the road a little easier.
Is this a craft book? Encouragement and support for those who are stuck or feeling as though they don't have what it takes? A meditation on why write in the first place?
Yes to all of those things.
Bad Choices Make Good Stories is a collection of essays about craft, revision, and the community and struggles that go along with the writing life. Author Erin Dionne has taught writing for over two decades, has published seven novels and two picture books, and shares her experience--peppered with a healthy dose of humor--with readers in this honest and funny collection.
