The basic goal in this workbook is for the writer to write at least one new story each month for twelve months. The writer is in charge of writing more or less. The suggested word count for each story is 750-1,000 words, a 3-minute story. However, writers can write a novella or a full length novel if led to do so. This workbook can be used by individual writers, a writing group, a book club, or writing classes. In twelve chapters, the writer will have an opportunity to explore themes, settings, story conflicts, and complete a story each month. The writer will have an opportunity to develop writing skills and use his or her talent to exercise the craft of writing a good story in twelve chapters that coincide with twelve months. Over the course of one year, the writer will be encouraged to write a new pitch each month and attend a writing conference. At the beginning of the workbook, the writer can take a motivation test to see the level of awareness he or she has for writing stories and the level of awareness for writing for the benefit of others. The purpose of the motivation test is to see progress over one year. By taking the test before and after the workbook is complete, the writer can see real development in commitment to writing stories. This workbook is a place where writers will be motivated by seeing a compilation of stories over the course of one year.

This is a companion to The Creative Writing Handbook - now in its second edition. It is very much aimed at the individual writer, based on the idea that real writing comes from within and that writing is a craft, skill with determination, art with attitude. The book is filled with useful ideas and inspiring techniques for exploring and exploiting resources available, both within and without. It focuses on three major areas - the writer's roots (family, class and gender), the writer's resources (memory and language) and the writer's art (form and technique). Chapters focus on many topics, including how memory shapes a writer's material, the pro-creative force of words and the ambiguities of art and artfulness. Many examples of established writers' works are cited to give the fledgling writer much practical help.
