HOW TO BE A WRITER: building your creative skills through practice and play (Writer’s Digest)

Practice, practice, practice. Musicians and athletes practice in order to train their bodies; aspiring writers need to practice in order to train their minds. How To Be a Writer: building your creative skills through practice and play shows them how.

While most writing instruction books focus on technique, this one concentrates on a different set of writing skills: the ability to come up with content, and the ability to establish a natural relationship with readers. Written in a down-to-earth manner, the book shows beginning and struggling writers how they can use practice to develop innate mental powers such as observation, imagination, curiosity, and the subconscious. With the solid foundation provided here, the readers of this book can then move on more advanced learning.
