The book is available at bookstores and online.

Waltz offers people inspiration, courage and a fresh perspective on life as a writer of more than 50 creative non-fiction stories published in “Chicken Soup for the Soul,” “Cup of Comfort” and other anthologies.

The very existence of “Chicken Soup for the Soul” is inspiration for writers, as Jack Canfield and Mark Victor Hansen endured years of rejection before publishing the first volume in the series, which became a No. 1 New York Times bestseller and a worldwide favorite.

Now, just one month before the 20th anniversary of the original “Chicken Soup for the Soul,” the series has released a new anthology, “Chicken Soup for the Soul: Inspiration for Writers,” that contains 101 stories from people who have successfully chased their dream of writing, documenting their setbacks and successes, and sharing their tips for finding inspiration, overcoming writer’s block, making time to write and findings ways to get published.
