The writer is the greatest voice in all of human endeavour, says the author of the award-winning book ‘Writing Is the Worst Profession’.
‘It’s not just that writers are great writers, it’s that they are the greatest listeners.
‘It has to do with our nature as artists, our nature of being listeners.
We have a deep, innate sense of the importance of listening.
‘The more we listen to the story we can tell, the better it is going to be.’
It is a great privilege to be able to write that story, to write a book about it, to tell the story of the writer, and then to write the book about the writer’s voice.’
The award-winner’s story is one of the most inspiring, insightful and inspiring in all the business of the creative industries.’
Writing is not just a skill.
It’s a way of life.
It gives you power,’ he said.
‘And that’s what the world needs.’
The book includes interviews with some of the greatest writers of the past century, including Sylvia Plath, James Joyce, Ray Bradbury and Anne Sexton.’
I can’t believe I’m writing about writing and I love writing, and I can’t imagine a time in the future when I won’t be,’ Mr Gellatly said.’
This is a book for everyone who loves writing and who is passionate about the craft.’
In a recent interview with ABC News, Mr Gells said his writing has been the ‘most successful career move’ of his life.’
In terms of what I have achieved, the most important thing I’ve done is become a writer,’ he told the broadcaster.’
And I think that’s because I love the craft of writing, which is so much more rewarding than anything else I could have done in my life.
‘I’m grateful that my passion for writing is still with me.”
Writing Is The Worst Profession’ is available in the US, UK and Australia.
