The exercises are pure gold. I've used the "create your own White Album" with incredible success in classes I teach, and it is an invaluable resource for writing teachers. Teaching essay of place, this book offers a number of exercises I can use or tweak to connect with my assignment.
Even for non-writing-teachers, this book is a goldmine of inspiration, springboards and craft. The exercises are self-explanatory, isolated enough that you are almost invited to jump around, pick and choose, experiment and play.
If you write, at all, this book belongs on your shelf.
No, not on your shelf, I'm sorry. It belongs, well thumbed, on your desk.
Both of Ms Ellis' "WRITE NOW!",books have bolstered my knowledge and confidence. I am now writing with immensly renewed vigor with visions of success!. THUMBS UP!!
