This book comes highly recommended, however I did not find it inspiring.
The book contains 10 essays about Bradbury's life and writing.
This book is geared towards business people, however I think writers and
artists can glean much from this book. First Things First details a better
form of time management by examining both your wants as well as your
Excellent reading. Tho Gelb professes everyone has
"unlimited potential for learning and creativity,"
I was quite intimidated reading about da Vinci's genius.
The rest of the chapters are very interesting... The seven steps are:
Curiosity, Experience, being aware through our Senses, willingness to
embrace Chaos, balance between Art and Science, working the Body,
and recognition of Connections.
A wonderful book of prompts. Ideal for those of us who keep writer's
notebooks or journals. With 201 calls to writing, you're bound to find
Highly recommended. Kathleen Adams reminded me that a personal
journal is more than just a dull listing of the day's events.
She gives loads of different journaling techniques.
A book that leads participants through creative recovery from artistic
block. A twelve week program which highlights morning pages and
artistic dates. I was not able to complete the program, but the
book has some great ideas for us passive reader types.
Plenty of inspirational ideas and she's still preaching about morning
pages and artist's dates. Recommended.
Natalie Goldberg shows us how to practice writing.
Through practice and plenty of "low expectation" writing,
the writer learns to trust them self. It's the process of writing
which matters, not the finished product.
The rules of practice writing apply to everything. Yes, even sex.
:) This extension of Bones is excellent and fun reading.
What a great little book! Quick and Painless to read,
the chapters are broken down into section that are only about a page long.
The book is actually enjoyable and it covers all the bases.
It starts with writer's block, goes through style and common writing
errors, and ends with editing.
An inspirational writer's book full of good ideas. This is a book
that I keep reading over and over. Hundreds of good writing prompts
and lots of good advice, make sure you've got your notebook handy because
you are going to itch to write.
