 Excerpt from the first chapter

  The First Commandment of Success

What is the one common denominator among people who achieve their highest goals? They all, without exception, keep the first commandment of success--work.
The first man was sent forth out of a workless garden and admonished: "By the sweat of your face, you shall eat bread." God decreed it; the all time best seller mentions it 350 times; all best sellers result from it.
Hard continuous work has no stand-in, no substitute. It tops the list of fame and fortune requisites.
Networking and getting along with people ranks near the top. Even loners, called writers, must get along with editors. Yet, there are celebrity authors who don't know how. Education and special training are invaluable; but uneducated novelists have made millions. Sometimes the winners seem to possses no special talent or genius ...
The name of the game these people play?
from The Introduction

"Those who wish to succeed must ask the right preliminary questions."

"This book was compiled to help answer some of the right preliminary questions that many beginning writers fail to ask--until an avalanche of rejection rains on their enthusiasm, and drowns their confidence... Less about how to write, more about what to expect, and how to survive until you succeed..."

Invaluable Messages
The Writing World, Living The Literary Life offers unique and interesting messages for struggling writers at all levels. The author makes each reader believe it was written especially for him or her. The writing style is clear, crisp, to the point, and generously sprinkled with exemplary quotations. Additionally, each chapter ends with an inspirational poem on the subject just covered.
For the beginner, the struggler, and for every day living, as the "loner" writer in a 9 to 5 environment, this book is invaluable.
There are great sections on copyright infringment, censorship, contests, and the reviewing prcess... Especially liked the chapter on "The Power of Poetry."and the special feture of poetry scattered throught the book about the author's writing experience... Recomended to anyone desiring to become a writer.
--Norththland Journal

An Absolute Must
This revelation about the world of writing is an absolute must for beginning writers and aspiring authors who desperately need to know what editors think. There are a ton of books on "how to write," but this one was like having a mentor offering real and excellent reasons why they shouldn't give up on their dream. It's awe inspiring, the value of this book for promoting a writer's career.
-- The Write Word

This Book You Will Keep
This unique new book from a former contributing editor for Writer's World Magazine, culminates Ms. Luben's many years as writer's advocate. It is a different interesting read dedicated to the survival of struggling writers. For the long haul... for keeping up your confidence, keep it ever at your elbow. And for family cooperation and support, give it to them to read--the friends and family of every writer should read this book.
