I'm a writer by trade, and I read this for the first time when I was still unpublished. I found it enormously encouraging, and it's still the book I go to when I'm tearing my hair out. It acknowledges how tough writing is, and it rewards you and me for the stumbling steps we take to get better at it. Plus, it gives us POWERFUL weapons to use against that critical MONSTER who lives in our brain! I recommend it all the time.

Life changing. Literally and definitely life changing! I had always wanted to write but simply could get nowhere. A mind full of ideas that would flow when on the freeway, in the shower, etc., would run dry in moments after my fingers hit the keyboard. Frustrating! Then I read Writing on Both Sides of the Brain and attended Dr. Henriette Anne Klauser's half-day seminar by the same name. That did it. I'm now an award-winning novelist (Turn Back Time and two other novels--written with my daughter, Lisa Kay Hauser)and have four published children's picture books, with two more to be published this year--and get to speak in schools all across the nation. All of this in eight years. If you want to write but just can get moving--or continue moving--get this book! Put it in you shopping cart right away. Its practical insights, encouraging words, and how-to-do-it-now tips could bring you the deep satisfaction and rich rewards of being a person who can Put Your Heart on Paper. That last phrase is also the title of a book by Dr. Klauser. Happy and successful writing to you! --Philip Dale Smith, Tacoma, WA

More than just a bag of tricks, this brief work shows the reader how to get control of his internal critic (left brain) so that the creative right brain can do its magic.

Format: Paperback
Klauser focuses on the big picture using the progress log, rapid writing and branching. I liked branching out of ideas as a whole-brained, non-linear enterprise.

She emphasizes creative visualization at story planning and revision.

Writing On Both Sides Of The Brain contains tips like writing in the active voice and trimming fat.

This book is a practical guide to strengthen writing.

What more to say? I have had my copy for years and read it over and over again (and I am a professional writer). I buy it and give it as a present often.
I'd recommend this book to any beginning writer or anyone who needs a jump start now and again (don't we all?!).

Format: Paperback
This book is very useful for getting over the fear of writing and otherwise being stuck. You will not find advice about how to develop a plot in this book but rather some sage advice about how to get down to the business of writing. I found this book very helpful for starting out on my own work. I highly recommend it for those who suffer from writers block or are otherwise in need of techniques to get started writing.

Since reading this book I have recommended it to everyone who writes! It was recommended to me by my Toastmasters Club--it has been a great help for writing speeches. The author gives a new perspective and practical exercises that really help break down barriers--And it's fun to read.
