A book for writers would look like this, I suppose.
Or maybe a book for writers would resemble a book for readers who have written and who will write again.
So far, in addressing this question — for writers — I have told the truth, but that makes little or no difference, to me or to you, in my view.
Okay, then, let us go at the question this way:
What does a writer seek?
What does a writer seek to avoid?
That gets us closer to the point.
Short of my slipping your computer a clever cookie and monitoring your digital life, I am guessing here. Even if our keywords match and our libraries have significant overlap, and my wife and your girlfriend get together once a week for coffee (with an executive summary of topics covered, from my wife, on my desk by close of business), and I somehow can inhabit your skin and can jack in to your brain, I’m still guessing.
I’m guessing at what matters to you, a writer who is just like or sorta like or not at all like me.

Given the challenges of sentience and the unreliable, unruly nature of letters and words, to say nothing of sentences and paragraphs, I resolve to write about my hopes, my dreams, my fears, and my experience as a writer, editor, and self-publisher.
