It's no secret that many guys dread writing assignments. But writing doesn't have to be "boring nerd-work." Writing is about power; it's about fun; it's about spoofs, humor, sports, blood, farts, superheroes, giant monsters tearing down the city, and serious subjects, too. Ralph Fletcher, a guy writer himself and the author of forty-one books, discusses every tip needed to find the sweet spot in writing: the place where everything except the words stands still. With advice from favorite authors like Jon Scieszka, Jarrett Krosoczka, and Robert Lipsyte, this hands-on book will make a writer out of any guy.
