Release your Inner Writer: Ten Tips and Tricks to Coax out the Writer Within
Writing – great writing – does not come easily. And some writing days are harder than others. This is true not just for beginner writers, but for authors, too. So how do you work past that place where your mind is blank and spring cleaning your room is starting to look like a really good idea? How do you coax out the writer within?
In Release your Inner Writer: Ten Tips and Tricks to Coax out the Writer Within, award-winning Middle Grade author Allison Rushby gives primary students some new skills to put in their writer's toolbox. From becoming an idea hunter with a dedicated ideas notebook to using programmes like Written? Kitten! (who wouldn't want to write when you get a new picture of a kitten every 100 words?), young writers will discover lots of new ways to find ideas, get writing and keep writing.
