Format: Paperback
This is an excellent source book for writing exercises for both the individual and for classroom use. No matter which page you open it to, your will find an engaging task and useful discussion of an aspect of the writing process. Tasks are designed to be done in just five minutes, but users will find themselves generating such good material that they are likely to want to give the exercises more time.

I loved this book. It was an excellent addition to my collection of writing guides. I think that the author takes a very unique and playful, but also very helpful, approach to helping people write.

Margaret Geraghty's THE FIVE-MINUTE WRITER: EXERCISE AND INSPIRATION IN CREATIVE WRITING IN FIVE MINUTES A DAY, claims that you will often go over the five minutes. This book delivers exercises that press my creative button so that I rarely end in five minutes and sometimes I want to repeat all variations in the exercise. If you are having trouble getting started, do one of Geraghty's exercises. You will be off and running with words slipping off the end of your fingers on to the computer keys.

A very helpful tool for any writer that needs a little push.
I've used this as a daily writing exercise tool for some time now and it really does help me get into the flow of writing.

The exercises are short and easy to do in a very short amount of time.
