A SLIP OF THE KEYBOARD BY TERRY PRATCHETT

I have started reading this book and 55 pages in (a 380 page book), I think I have learned so much about the business of writing and the business of being a writer.  Insightful, funny, educational, entertaining and honest - loving it.  Onward......


A Slip of the Keyboard: Collected Non-Fiction (Paperback)

A Slip of the Keyboard:
Collected Non-Fiction
by Terry Pratchett
Foreword by Neil Gaiman

Here's the blurb from the Waterstones website:



Terry Pratchett in his own words. With a foreword by Neil Gaiman Terry Pratchett earned a place in the hearts of readers the world over with his bestselling Discworld series - but in recent years he became equally well-known as an outspoken campaigner for causes including Alzheimer's research and animal rights. A Slip of the Keyboard brings together the best of Pratchett's non fiction writing on his life, on his work, and on the weirdness of the world: from Granny Pratchett to Gandalf's love life; from banana daiquiris to books that inspired him; from getting started as a writer to the injustices that he fought to end. With his trademark humour, humanity and unforgettable way with words, this collection offers an insight behind the scenes of Discworld into a much loved and much missed figure - man and boy, bibliophile and computer geek, champion of hats, orang-utans and the right to a good death.
