Chapter 1 considers how to select a subject for writing. Chapter 2 0is on writing for professional journals and discusses selecting a journal and/or publisher, meeting each journal's standards and style requirements, and joint authorship. Chapter 3 is on submission processes (acceptance, a critique with suggested revisions, and rejection) and includes a brief discussion on practitioners' journals. Chapter 4 is on writing an entire book. This chapter stresses the importance of finding a publisher before writing the book, submission strategies, dealing with publishers, the publishing process, selecting a title, coauthored works, and indexing. The final chapter suggests ways to exploit the writing project. (Contains 15 references.) (CH)
