It is my absolute pleasure to introduce Francisco Angulo's witty and insightful book "Things you shouldn't do if you want to be a writer." As an avid reader and literary critic, I was instantly drawn into Angulo's world from the very first chapter. His candid reflections on the trials and tribulations of being an emerging writer in Spain offer a rare behind-the-scenes look at this competitive industry. Through humorous anecdotes and thoughtful commentary, Angulo paints a compelling portrait of the writing life.

This book is a must-read for aspiring writers and anyone fascinated by the business of publishing. Angulo's advice stems from hard-won experience that any writer will relate to. From submitting manuscripts to publishers to engaging with readers on social media, Angulo explores the less glamorous side of writing that is seldom discussed. He sheds light on the rejection, frustration, and disillusionment that are an inevitable part of this creative journey. Yet Angulo never loses his sense of humor or passion for literature along the way.

Angulo's candid insights are thus more valuable than ever in guiding writers on their journey. Even in the digital age, dedication, persistence, and believing in oneself remain key to realizing one's literary ambitions.

Angulo's prose is as engaging as his stories, making this book almost impossible to put down. His self-deprecating humor and candid reflections reveal an authentic, likable narrator underneath it all. While Angulo faced many unrealistic expectations and embarrassing missteps early on, he never gave up on writing or lost his humility. As his perseverance finally pays off, Angulo remains committed to sharing his wisdom and lifting up fellow writers. This generosity of spirit is what makes Angulo such a compelling and root-worthy mentor.

For any writer struggling to get their work noticed, Angulo's book offers camaraderie, reassurance, and an essential guide. Aspiring authors will surely recognize their own highs and lows in Angulo's insightful tales. Meanwhile, his hard-won advice on everything from writer's block to social media provides practical guidance grounded in experience.
