Is Creative Writing “Easy”?
PART ONE: GET STARTED
From the reviews:
“Ultimately all the advice to would-be writers of any age comes down to this command: Write. Hirschi spells it out in the introduction – the point of this book is to get writing. By establishing a writing practice and putting words to paper – the easy part – the writer can develop the required skills. The first few chapters advocate sound techniques, including setting aside time to write every day, journaling, and free writing (continuously writing for a set period of time). …this book provides some solid advice and techniques.”
