"Page after Page" guides the writer from the first blank page through to the final completed project, from the first resistance to the reward of completion. The book includes 54 exercises and hundreds of tips for success. Heather Sellers provides practical advice for the beginning writer.

Seller's approach will attract a limited audience. This is not a book for casual, perfunctory reading. It will take a dogged person to commit to the discipline and dedication necessary to follow these exercises. However this will enable the diligent to reap the most benefit from the book.

Although Sellers writing style may appeal to some, it did not resonate with me. I found the exercises and suggestions in her book "Chapter after Chapter" more helpful to me personally. If you enjoy "Page after Page" you will want to add both books to your writing reference library.
This is a great book for a number of reasons. First, it's fun to read. Ms. Seller's writing style is enjoyable, and she has kept the chapters very manageable and compartmentalized. I can read a section, get inspired, then put it down for a day or two while I do the exercises, which are the next good thing about the book.

At the end of each chapter are exercises that are often very different from typical writing exercises. They seem a little more inspired or thoughtful. For instance, the one I really like is 10 minutes of writing, with a pencil or marker because they're slower than ball point pens, on unlined paper, on a topic using no adjectives or adverbs.

Another thing I really like about this book is that a lot of the exercises she has in there to motivate you for writing can be applied to other areas of life as well. Just substitute in your topic of choice (for me it's programming) and work the exercise to apply to that area. It really is a very good book, and well worth the purchase.
Freaky Hook
Well written, almost like having a conversation with the author. The assignments are help[ful and keep one writing. This may make and author of me yet.
Conversational style. Page after Page makes you feel good just reading it. Plus it teaches you about writing. A winning combination.
Lots of good ideas, exercises and information.
Really Like the author's different POV on writing.
Helpful and inspirational and practical.
Heather Sellers' book is a gift to the writing world. I've never read a book about writing that both tells it like it is and is amazingly helpful. It's so good I have to read it a chapter at a time to savor it, and the exercises at the end of each chapter serve as great illustrations on how to tackle writing problems. After I finished this I immediately ordered her other writing book.
This is one of my favorite among favorite books to guide you back into th ejoy of writing. taking away teh labor and reintroducing the fascination, love and joy in your creative journey. A MUST HAVE
Heather Sellers presents some unique thoughts about the writing life. She compares writing to a lover, the material you write from as compost, and puts a spin on rejections that makes you positiviely giddy to receive them. Along the way she offers some great advice for writers including reading as much as you can; attending book readings, lectures, and workshops; and my favorite--NAPPING! What's not to love about a book that encourages napping? At the end of each chapter are one or more exercises that stretch not only your writing, but your writing life. If you are a writer in need of a friendly cheerleader, this book is for you.
