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.

'Writing with Stardust' will launch your writing skills into a different orbit. It not only shows you how to write, it teaches you how to look at the world with an 'artist's eye'. Spring is described as nature's defibrillator in the book. In the same way, the techniques used here will be the high voltage pacemaker you have been looking for in your writing. Ready to greet you are females with constellation-blue eyes and megawatt smiles. Males with Hercules-gold hair move like panthers in slow-mo. Thumb plump bumblebees, wings a-thrum, loot from honeypots of mustard-yellow flowers. Willowy waterfalls swoop into infinity pools while the stars above sparkle like angel fire. Pine and peat, mint and meringue; all the smells and tastes you could wish for are inside. Join us on a multisensory voyage of discovery that will change the way you think forever. Nature can be a cruel mistress, however. Blood-red moons leer over boiling seas while mariners try to defy ancient curses. Grim faced men fight for their lives under starless skies and sun blasted deserts burn hotter than Greek fire. Even the lightning flashes like the cold, gold prongs of the Apocalypse. The book provides a platform for students, parents, teachers and lovers of English to launch their descriptive powers into a new orbit. The word banks contain words for five different levels of ability. Whether you are a young English student or a seasoned scribe, you will find that this book will transform the way you think about descriptive writing.
