52 Dates for Writers – Ride a Tandem, Assume an Alias and 50 Other Ways to Improve your Craft
This inventive creative-writing guide will take you away from your desk, encouraging you to return with new ideas, fresh insight, better writing skills and a renewed passion for your novel, short stories or non-fiction project. Each suggested activity is accompanied by practical exercises to help with writing, revising and editing your work. For instance, climb a hill to gain a new viewpoint, then rewrite a section of your book from an expanded, zoomed-out perspective. Or gatecrash an event, then write a scene about your character in an awkward situation. Give life to your words by getting out and living!
Read solo, or create your own private book group to read – and write – along with your fellow writers.
