How to develop practical strategies for overcoming writing obstacles

Rob Melton, Contributing Editor

In Roy Peter Clark’s new book, “Help! For Writers” — with its new mobile app — he came up with something quite different to help writers overcome the obstacles they face: Getting Started; Getting Your Act Together; Finding Focus; Looking for Language; Building a Draft; Assessing Your Progress; Making It Better.

This new book identifies the most common obstacles writers face, and the best strategies for overcoming them, offering tips to help you better understand your own writing process.

Also consider purchasing the mobile app for Help! For Writers, at a cost of $1.99., and encourage your students to do the same.  It offers a complete outline of the process, the problems, and the solutions that writers juggle. .
