Part of the Workshop in a Book series, (re)Discover the Joy of Creative Writing, is ideal for new writers looking to overcome writer’s block or boost their creativity, or for experienced writers looking to reignite their creative fuse.
With over 50 exercises to get you started and to keep you writing, (re)Discover the Joy of Creative Writing will spark ideas – whether you are an aspiring writer or an experienced writer looking for a creative spark. It will help you discover, or rediscover, the joy of writing. And it will encourage you to push your writing to the point where you can think seriously about completing longer works of fiction, a series of thematically-related short stories or perhaps a collection of poetry.
If you want to practice the art of writing, hone your craft or explore creative writing options, getting started and having fun should be your focus, and that’s what this book focuses on – the personally-rewarding and joyful aspect of creative writing.
(re)Discover the Joy of Creative Writing, by Paul Lima, shows you how to kick-start your creative writing and how to keep it going as you freefall, play word association, journey through childhood, play “What if?” and use many other tools and techniques to get you writing and keep you going.
