My son is a fencer. A serious fencer. Fencing is a mental game. My husband recently handed him The Art of War and told him to read it for strategy. So my eleven year old has been devouring it. In the mean time, here comes a book for writers–The Art of War for Writers by James Scott Bell. Now writing is definitely a battle in so many ways. You battle with yourself, with rejection and insecurity, not to mention the publishing world. This is a book for all levels of writers. It’s really fabulous! So buy it for the writer in your life and stick it in their stocking or under the tree.
