abandoning that approach now is disorienting. Sec- ond, they know an awful lot.

Filled with keen observations, autobiographical notes, and the seeds of many of Maugham's greatest works, A Writer's Notebook is a unique and exhilarating look into a great writer's mind at work. From nearly five decades, Somerset Maugham recorded an intimate journal. In it we see the budding of his incomparable vision and his remarkable career as a writer. Covering the years from his time as a youthful medical student in London to a seasoned world traveler around the world, it is playful, sharp witted, and always revealing. Undoubtedly one of his most significant works, A Writer's Notebook is a must for Maugham fans and anyone interested in the creative process.

Watch Me is a great way for writers to track their writing sprints and increase writing speed. How does a writer sprint? Choose a small chunk of time, say fifteen or twenty minutes. Set a timer. Start writing and keep going until the timer goes off. Turn off your internal critic and just write...even if the words are bad. (You can edit later.) Stop when the timer goes off. Take a break. Start that timer and jump into another sprint! Give yourself a mental high five once it's all said and done. (Or a physical high five! This writing gig can get lonely sometimes...) How does this sprint tracker help? Each sprint page has a place for notes, goals, and ideas on the opposing page, so you can access your day's work at a glance. Space for twenty daily sprints on each page. Watching that word count grow is a great motivator to keep writing. By learning to turn off that inner editor, you can dive deeper into your story Specs 149 total pages 73 sprint pages 73 notes/goals/ideas pages soft, matte cover 6x9 trim size perfect gift for the author in your life (what better way to treat a writer than by giving them a BOOK to help with writing?) Grab this writer's notebook and sprint tracker, get out there, and start sprinting... The only one who can write your story is you!
