If you have it in mind to do some writing, but you don't know where to start, how to get it done, or just plain "don't have time", you should pick up Shut Up & Write! by Judy Bridges. Judy is an accomplished writer and the teacher of the Redbird Studio writing center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She has put valuable information for writers in clear and readable form.
My favorite part, however, is the section on how to motivate yourself to get the job done. One example: One of her students was complaining about not having enough time to write. Judy asked him if he had any money. He had a twenty dollar bill. She put it in her pocket and said, "You can have this back when you write thirty pages." It took him a week.
Judy's point in this book - Here's how to do it, now get busy and do it!
