Summary

This A-to-Z compendium presents the last recorded words of more than 1,500 individuals across history, from ancient kings to modern outlaws. A person’s last words carry intrinsic and enduring fascination, especially if the individual in question is widely remembered or historically significant. Whether profound or pedestrian, these final statements can sum up an entire life—or even prophecy the future. This unique reference volume collects 1,664 quotations representing the last words of some of history’s most famous, fascinating, and influential personalities. They include kings and queens, statesmen and scientists, poets, saints, criminals, and many others. Dictionary of Last Words is a treasure trove of deathbed pronouncements, last letters, and true gallows humor.

    This inspirational guide for aspiring and experienced writers was originally published in 1997. Written in a friendly, hopeful, and gently humorous tone, it focuses on the creative process and emotional ups and downs of the creative life, providing insights into how to persist in the face of rejection, frustration, feelings of inadequacy, lack of support from loved ones, and more. It also offers practical how-to advice, from organizing your time so you actually sit down and write to reading as a writer.  This ebook’s rerelease of The Writer’s Survival Guide includes a new introduction that discusses the origins of the book and how, in spite of the many changes in publishing and technology, it remains relevant today.
