Snoopy sits atop his dog house, banging out stories on a manual typewriter. Usually they begin "It was a dark and stormy night..." Always they're rejected. In Snoopy's Guide to the Writing Life - a wonderful gift for writers - a roundup of 30 famous writers and entertainers respond in short essays to their favorite Snoopy "at the typewriter" strip. Each essay focuses on how the strip presents an aspect of writing life - getting started, getting rejected, searching for new ideas, and more - everything that beginners and professional writers deal with on a daily basis. The essays are light and sometimes humorous, but all of them offer insight and inspiration for writers working at any level. The book presents a powerful lineup of contributors, including: Ray Bradbury; Julia Child; Sue Grafton; Elmore Leonard; And the Beagle himself! William F. Buckley, Jr.; Elizabeth George; Evan Hunter; Danielle Steel; Editors Barnaby Conrad and Monte Schulz (son of the late Charles Schulz) provide introductory chapters that address the writing life and how Snoopy's experience - his tenacity and resilience - can inspire us all.
