Finally—poet, author, and educator Jeffrey Hillard puts his experience, skill, and enthusiasm for writing down on paper for our benefit. In Story's Triumph, the first in a planned Write-Up series, Hillard encourages us to take our writing, and creativity, to the next step. By sharing a few simple concepts like the use of details and recycling our mistakes, Hillard explores and explains techniques some of our most favored and successful writers have employed to bring the word on the page to life.

This short and entertaining book contains unique and fun exercises after each topic to encourage writers to stretch the boundaries of our imaginations and sharpen the impact of our writing.

One of my favorite lines from the book is "Your imagination can work wonders with things that you can't yet fully envision."

Hillard "gets it." He understands the written word, the writing process, and the writer. His book is informative, encouraging, and will make you see your writing and its possibilities in a new light. His enthusiasm is contagious.

Story's Triumph is a book to read slowly, practice with, and then keep close-by to re-read again and again.

I'm looking forward to the next book in Hillard's Write-Up series.

A wonderful, engaging e book that encourages the reluctant writer. The author writes with precision and grace, and the anecdotes and exercises are original and extremely helpful -- a valuable resource. I am looking forward to the rest of the series!
