Main description:

“Theo Nestor is a writer who, I am positive, will be heard from,” wrote Pulitzer Prize–winning author Frank McCourt, and hear from her we do in this enthralling memoir that doubles as a witty and richly told writing guide. Yet the real promise in Writing Is My Drink lies in Nestor’s uncanny ability as a storyteller and teacher to make sure we’ll also hear from you, the reader. Brimming with stories from her own writing life, and paired with practical “Try This” sections designed to challenge and inspire, this disarmingly candid account of a writer’s search for her voice delivers charming, wise, and often hilarious guidance that will motivate writers at every stage of their careers.

Review quote:

"A beautifully told story that's as much about family, love and identity as it is about one of life's most traumatic events."

Review quote:

"As keenly observed, wickedly funny and haunting as a fine novel, Nestor gives us a field guide to the writer's life and how to navigate it without losing hope. "Writing Is My Drink" fearlessly plumbs the coming of age of a writer in a tough market -- offering not just signposts but effective exercises that will get you out of your head and onto the page. Nestor's triumphs are hard won and yet accessible to authors of all persuasions; she finds a way to unleash your voice and still the negative chorus that all writers inevitably face on the road through rejection and doubt to publication. This is not just a How To, but a gripping memoir as icy and refreshing as a cool martini on a hot summer's day. If you buy only one book about the writing life, make it this one."

Review quote:

"For those feeling battered by writer's block, overwhelm, or self-doubt, this book is a magic carpet ride out of that muck and into wide-open, soul-connected creative flow, uncannily engaging for people who generally can't abide writing guides. And Nestor is a quietly captivating, intimate, healing storyteller--the best and rarest kind."

Review quote:

"Her account has remarkable candor, but also self-deprecating humor."

Review quote:

"Her clever and relatable prose makes her tale endearing and insightful, and she sidesteps the cliches of a woman wounded with bittersweet honesty."

Review quote:

"Nestor captures the sense of stigma and failure many divorced parents feel."

Review quote:

"Nestor writes with a self-possession and gentleness that is arresting—offering sentiment, without sentimentality."

Review quote:

"Self-expression is the new entertainment; consider the explosive growth of blogs, self-publishing, and NaNoWriMo! Increasingly, people recognize that creativity is an important element of happiness, and Writing Is My Drink by Theo Nestor will be the new Bird by Bird for the vast group of people looking for guidance and inspiration as they tackle their dream of being a writer."

Review quote:

"This is a book to savor, each delicious and thoroughly entertaining chapter revealing not just more of Theo's brilliance, but your own as well. For all those yearning to discover your own creative and unique inner literary genius, look no further. You've come home."

Review quote:

"With cheerfully self-deprecating humor, Nestor shares her divorce process, always giving generous credit to the family and friends who helped her, and in her telling she offers hope that if that's what readers are facing, they, too, can manage."

Review quote:

“If you don't like wisdom, then you probably shouldn't read this book. Also, if you hate good stories. Theo Pauline Nestor's beautifully useful book gives us necessary wisdom about writing, and in the offing she spins a great yarn about how she became the person she was meant
Praise for How to Sleep Alone in a King-Size Bed:

"A divorced mother’s funny, chatty, revealing take on Splitsville—with just enough anguish and sadness to be utterly believable."
