A Writer's Notebook: Unlocking the Writer Within You Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Writers are like other people, except for at least one important difference. Other people have daily thoughts and feelings, notice this sky or that smell, but they don't do much about it.

Not writers. Writers react. And writers need a place to record those reactions. That's what a writer's notebook is for. It gives you a place to write down what makes you angry or sad or amazed, to write down what you noticed and don't want to forget . . . .

Synopsis:

Many authors keep a notebook in which they record impressions. memories descriptions, coversations, ideas, facts, dreams, bits of witing they like, etc.This book shows kids what kind of thing they might take note of, and it shows them how t take that raw material and fashion it into pieces of writing. Fletcher's approach is suggestive rather than prescriptive; this book takes writng seriously but is lively, not academic, in tone and content.
