As Carolyn See says, writing guides are like preachers on Sunday - there may be a lot of them, but you can't have too many and there's always an audience of the faithful. And while Making a Literary Life is ostensibly a book that teaches you how to write, it really teaches you how to make your interior life into your exterior life, how to find and join that community of like-minded souls you're sure is out there somewhere.
