An easy to read book of short letters to writers. The letters are called "love letters" as they are full of encouraging words to get writers through those times when life and/or your writing are getting you down.

She shares the struggles as well as the joys, and she gives me hope that one day I might do the same. When of...

Sitting down to read a letter from Andi is so comforting and powerful. For the last couple of years, I've gotten her emails on writing. Having her letters compiled into this book makes it easier to access and to refer to as time goes on. Her writing is a comfort as well as a nudge to get going. I...
