Book Review - UNLEASH THE WRITER WITHIN by Cecil Murphey

Unleash The Writer Within
I so enjoyed this little book. Each chapter read like a sort of devotional for writers--BUT even if I were not a writer, I would love this one.


You would think a writer as famous as Cecil Murphey could justifiably be pretty sold on himself, but he sure doesn't come across that way in this book. People I know who have met him say it sounds just like him--humble, unassuming, and helpful.

It's not a how-to book as much as a why-to. Or maybe a why-do-you or a why-do-you-not? It digs deep into your soul and makes you question yourself. And I don't mean that negatively--far from it. Instead, he encourages you to find out what really stirs you and whip up that thought into a saleable missive.

There are not a lot of authors who actually make a good living selling their books, but Mr. Murphey does and has for at least three decades. After reading this one, I can understand why. And he has some wonderful hints for improving your craft.

If you are a writer (or even if you're not), you might think about getting Unleash the Writer Within. It's available from Amazon, Barnes and Nobel, and Christian Book Distributors.
