Unlike previous volumes which focus on how to earn a living while writing in very specific areas, this anthology accurately describes a wide range of different avenues an aspiring author can pursue, either for profit or for personal fulfillment. Speaking directly to retirees, this book opens doors to many other areas worth pursuing; its chapters vary from the inspirational (the importance of linking to a community with similar interests, reconnecting to one's dreams, seeking inspirational sources) to the quotidian (everyday writing tips, and how to use one's experience to find subjects to write about). Writing after Retirement provides a variety of vantage points from published authors and paints a realistic portrayal of what it takes to get started in the industry. This book also includes preparation for the challenges that aspiring writers face, and practical guides for overcoming them. A range of issues are addressed: *Linking one's writing to current activities *The nuts and bolts of writing *Planning one's estate *New career paths *Writing opportunities *Practical advice on how to take that first step Whether writing for pleasure or for profit, the reader will find plenty to choose from in this collection.

Rockford has a large and active retirement community, with many perks and opportunities for senior citizens. If you are one of them or know a retired person who has a gift for writing, consider this book: Writing After Retirement: Tips from Successful Writers. . . .I recommend this book highly. . . .Check out the book online. Perhaps it's just what you or a friend are looking for. Perhaps it could serve as a text for a group of retired writers. I am looking forward to using it in my own workshops for both instruction and inspiration. * The Rock River Times *
There is something for everyone in this book, but above all, it's practical, down-to-earth, and sensible. It opens the mind to new paths from the traditional to online, to different genres, and to new approaches to the writing life. Regardless of the variety of offerings in this book, however, two key points remain critical. Writers have to write and writers must persist. * The Commonline Journal *
