Pep Talks for Writers: 52 Insights and Actions to Boost your Creative Mojo


Pep Talks for Writers

Facing  a blank page can be intimidating to even the most seasoned and prolific writers.

Have you questioned the existence of the muse or wondered how your mojo escaped?

If so, you may need a pep talk and Grant Faulkner has written just the book to give you that little something to get you writing again.

It is a book to read straight through or have on your desk to refer to in moments of panic.

Pep Talks for Writers is 52 short chapters of insight, encouragement and candor from the executive director of NaNoWriMo and cofounder of 100 Word Story.

Writing 50,000 words in November, or a complete story in exactly 100 words and everything in between, Grant brings his experiences together to give us all the courage to face our fears. He sums up the book in a simple review:

You are a creator.


But you knew that already, didn’t you?

Picasso once said, “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.”

The next 52 weeks of pep talks may help us solve this problem.

Next week pep talk # 1 for writers: You don’t need permission to be a creator.


Grant Faulkner is also published in The Southwest Review, PANK, Poets & Writers, The Berkeley Review, Word Riot and Gargoyle.
