Publisher Description

Encouraging, humorous and straight-talking, Shut Up & Write!  is filled with practical advice about writing and the writers’ life.


For years Judy Bridges has been helping writers perfect their craft. Shut Up & Write! shares her knowledge with those who do not have the privilege of working with her directly. 


Instructive and encouraging, beginners use it to learn the brass tacks; pros use it as a tune-up or to polish skills in added areas. 


Topics include: how to organize thoughts, engage readers, make characters (real or imagined) come to life, select a workable point of view, show and tell, keep the “drive” in narrative drive, handle critiques, edit, and get published.
