There appears to be two types of creative processes reported by writers – one that is effortless and one that is effortful. Evidence suggests that an unconscious mechanism may underlie the passivity of inspired writing. We tested the hypothesis that activation of implicit motives is linked to inspired writing. A sample of college students (n = 206) attended lab sessions in which they wrote a “blog entry” on the meaning of life, and reported the extent to which they felt inspired or exerted effort. Participants’ implicit motives were measured using the Picture Story Exercise. Multiple regression analysis shows that inspiration predicts writing about topics consistent with implicit motives, and effort predicts writing about topics inconsistent with implicit motives. Implications of implicit motives on inspired and effortful writings are discussed.

A spirited and useful guide for writers with tips and tricks from Jane Austen, whose novels stand the test of time, by her great great great great grand niece. Pretty much anything anyone needs to know about writing can be learned from Jane Austen. While creative writing manuals tend to use examples from twentieth- and twenty-first-century writers, The Jane Austen Writers Club is the first to look at the methods and devices used by the world's most beloved novelist. Austen was a creator of immortal characters and a pioneer in her use of language and point of view; her advice continues to be relevant two centuries after her death. Here Rebecca Smith examines the major aspects of writing fiction--plotting, characterization, openings and endings, dialogue, settings, and writing methods--sharing the advice Austen gave in letters to her aspiring novelist nieces and nephew, and providing many and varied exercises for writers to try, using examples from Austen's work. Exercises include: *Show your character doing the thing he or she most loves doing. In the opening scene of Persuasion, Sir Walter Elliot looks himself up in the Baronetage, which is the Regency equivalent of Googling oneself. That single scene gives us a clear understanding of the kind of man he is and sets up the plot. * Use Jane Austen's first attempts at stories to get yourself started. Write a very short story inspired by The Beautifull Cassandra, a work of eighteenth-century flash fiction. The Jane Austen Writers Club is a fresh primer on writing that features utterly timeless advice.

Dr. Marilyn Hope Lake used her experience as a creative writing instructor and her award winning painting skills to create the EKPRHASTIC WRITING WORKBOOK . It contains 20 original pieces of art: ten watercolor paintings and ink drawings, plus ten art quality photographs. Ekprhasis is defined as a literary description of or commentary on a visual work of art. Each work of art in this workbook is presented with space for writing. All are meant to motivate, inspire and entertain the creative spirit. Daren Dean, nationally known author and professor of writing at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge wrote, " Here's a new writing workbook that may be of help to some of you in the classroom. Please checkout this wonderful book by one of my former writer professors, Mariyn Hope Lake." "I like the landscapes. I think that this book might be useful for high school students or individuals who want personal inspiration for their writing," comment from another writing professor. When you look at one of the paintings, drawings or photos, what does it bring to your writer's mind? What are your first thoughts? Does the illustration evoke a feeling? Memory? A particular time? Poetry or prose? A sonnet? A simple verse? Flash Fiction or an anecdote? Does it call for a narrative poem? Or a short story? Perhaps a bit of whimsy? This workbook is intended to motivate, inspire and entertain the creative spirit. It has no "how to" instructions, simply visual art and space to begin writing.

She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted. Three short lines, fired over social media in response to questions of why Senator Elizabeth Warren was silenced on the floor of the United States Senate, for daring to read aloud the words of Coretta Scott King. As this message was transmitted across the globe, it has become a galvanizing cry for people of all genders in recognition of the struggles that women have faced throughout history. Three short lines, which read as if they are the opening passage to an epic and ageless tale. We have assembled this flash fiction collection featuring several of the best writers in SF/F today, including Seanan McGuire, Charlie Jane Anders, Maria Dahvana Headley, Jo Walton, Amal El-Mohtar, Catherynne M.

If you like your fiction entwined with fact ("faction"), this collection of flash fiction (less than 250 words per story) is for you! Theodore Jerome Cohen is an award-winning author who has published more than ten novels-all but one of them mystery/thrillers-two short-story anthologies, and one Young Adult (YA) mystery/thriller written under the pen name Alyssa Devine. During his 45-year career he has worked as an engineer, scientist, CBS Radio Station News Service (RSNS) commentator, private investigator, and Antarctic explorer. What he's been able to do with his background is mix fiction with reality in ways even his family and friends have been unable to unravel! A few of the stories featured here, in Book 3 of the series Flash Fiction Anthologies, were award-winning entries in the weekly Flash Fiction Challenges sponsored by the Website Indies Unlimited. Others are based on or inspired by Cohen's fictionalized autobiography, Full Circle, and his Det. Louis Martelli, NYPD, series of mystery/thrillers. Most, however, are the product of his creative mind, prompted by an endless stream of provocative photographs of people, animals, buildings, and landscapes found on a variety of Internet sites. Specifically, in this volume, you'll find a tale about an injured bomb-tracking dog named Drak in Afghanistan, a gritty story about a standoff between a detective and a female serial killer, the humorous tale about the theft of one of the Queen of England's swans, and a story about a suspenseful conflict between the chief of a Native American tribe and a cowboy. In short (pun intended), there is something in this book for almost every genre and taste.
