The Writer's Compass is my way of sharing what I've learned with other writers and to encourage them. It is a comprehensive book filled with exercises and questions to assist writers at all levels. There are three ways to approach The Writer's Compass: · Reading through the book will give writers new information and new writing techniques. · Doing some of the exercises and answering some of the questions will teach writers new skills. · Answering all of the questions and doing all the exercises will develop the writer's skills to a new level.
