How to Success!: A Writer's Guide to Fame and Fortune - Corinne Caputo

Well, doubt many of you are seeking that perfect paragraph shape.  From the synopsis:

This parody self-help book for writers is filled with hilariously misguided tips, factual-looking charts, and other advice that knowingly pokes fun at writerly foibles while still cheering would-be authors on.

 

With this book, struggling writers can find suggestions for effective paragraph shapes, tips on where to find inspiration (in your reflection, in the shapes of gum stuck to the ground, in a consultation with your doctor), thoughtful poses for author photos, pull-out procrastination excuses, and much more.

 

How to Success! is filled with enough almost-helpful advice to keep aspiring writers amused, unblocked, and on their way to literary fame.

 

(It's one of March's ARCs (Early Reviewers program) over on LibraryThing.)
