“Sometimes I come across an unexpected gem. My Writing Year: Making Sense of Being a Writer is one of them. Joseph Sutton set himself the task to write an essay each week for a year about the writing process. A delight of a read in which Sutton shows how excellent writing can be short and succinct. He muses about why he writes and his thoughts are terse with descriptive honesty.” —Gert Scholtz, South African author

My Writing Year is my favorite of all of Joseph Sutton’s books because it is about the creative process
Joseph Sutton has a lot to say about writing in My Writing Year. I particularly liked his emphasis on actually writing—getting words down as a pathway to clarifying thoughts. So many would-be writers wait for a thunderbolt or talk about writing but don’t actually write.
Joseph Sutton’s My Writing Year is perfect for every aspiring writer out there. He has so much to say about writing and persevering at writing.
Joseph Sutton is a man in love with WRITING. He gifts the reader with 52 inspirational essays why writers are the luckiest people in the world.
