How to Be a Writer shows how to practice the skills of writing—just like athletes and musicians practice to develop their skills. Whether writing a novel or composing poetry, or more prosaic writing for school or work, this innovative book shows readers how to exercise and develop a writer’s powers—creativity, memory, observation, imagination, curiosity, and the subconscious—while understanding the true nature of the relationship between writer and readers.It provides creativity exercises, practice drills, instruction on story-telling techniques, and more for all ages, experience levels, and genres, and breaks the writing process down to focus on the fundamentals of content creation.
