Sometimes the Magic Works: Lessons from a Writing Life
“If you don’t think there is magic in writing, you probably won’t write anything magical,” says Brooks. This book offers a rare opportunity to peer into the mind of (and learn a trick or two from) one of fantasy fiction’s preeminent magicians.
Reviews“A marvelously pragmatic initiation to the art of writing.”
-- Dorothy Allison
Author of Bastard Out of Carolina
“[A] succinct and warmhearted autobiographical mediation on the writing life.”
“Terry Brooks is adamant about dedicating oneself to the craft, while showing awe and humility for the creative process. . . . Every serious writer should refer to this book regularly for inspiration as well as solid crafting advice.”
— Elizabeth Engstrom Cratty
