365 Ways to Get You Writing

60d5f258-26be-4cef-a6ac-2434e60f2d3f

Write every day. That’s the advice that most experts give to new writers, and it is advice that Jane Cooper pick up on in her new book. For each day of the year she sets out a two-page spread of teaching advice accompanied by exercises that enable you to put the advice into practice.

This way, not only do you have something to write about each day – and which therefore provides your daily practice – but you will be learning from the writing you are doing. Exercises, for example, show you how to write realistic dialogue, how to use personal experience to inspire your fiction, and how to choose the right person and tense for your stories.

In most of these 365 spreads, there are some three or four exercises as the basis for your daily writing practice, so there is plenty to get your teeth into without it being too demanding, and you will find that most of these exercises are fun to complete.
