We either think our lives are so special that everyone should be interested in what's happened to us, or so ordinary that we can't imagine anyone would care. The truth lies somewhere in between: yes, we are all special, and no, people will notcare--unless we write with them in mind. Joanne Fedler, a beloved writing teacher and mentor, has written Your Story to help all people, even those who don't necessarily identify as writers, value their life stories and write them in such a way that they transcend the personal and speak into a universal story. This book shows how to write from your life, but for the benefit of others. Each human life is unique, and the meaning we each make from our joys and suffering can, if written with a reader in mind, be an act of generosity and sharing. Filled with practical wisdom and tools, the book tackles: -mindset issues that prevent us from writing -ways to develop trust (in yourself, the process, the mystery) -triggers or prompts to elicit our own stories -Joanne's original techniques for lifewriting developed over a decade of teaching and mentoring -and much more Joanne understands the writer's loneliness, says one such writer whose life she's touched, the award-winning Israeli author Nava Semel. In this book she has created a menu of encouraging possibilities on how to overcome our fears and dig deep into our souls, so that our true voice can emerge.

Help students appreciate texts and write about them with conviction. Responding to a comprehension question is a surprisingly complex task. It draws on multiple skills: students must be able to read and analyze a text passage; consider what aspect of the text the question addresses; and then quickly and concisely write about their ideas, citing evidence to support them. Hence the prominence of constructed-response questions in standardized testing. In this refreshingly clear and upbeat guide, literacy consultant Nancy Boyles gives a step-by-step demonstration of how to help students achieve success with this task—and in the process of unpacking the steps involved, demonstrates how the instruction can inspire teachers’ creativity as well as deepen students’ literacy skills. Filled with ready-to-use scaffolds for every stage of instruction—sets of sample questions, anchor charts, cue cards, answer frames—this is a one-stop resource for teaching students how to organize their thoughts about what they’ve read, and then set them down in writing.

So 500,000 English students a year are examined on how to write a short story. Well, this should be brilliant, because being able to write a short story is an art, a gift, a talent that will last long after the GCSE is replaced by who knows what. And do the exam boards give us examples of how to write them? Well, I couldn't find any that my students could write in 45 minutes, and still get top marks. Seriously, not one. So, I wrote some. And then some more. It was more than fun, it was playful, and I felt (I know, we're English and I'm not supposed to talk about feelings) a sense of joy. I was already an author, but now, I was becoming a proper writer. And here they are, over 20 short stories which will teach you to become a writer. Oh, and yes, how to get the top grades in an exam. Then I asked my friend Lee, another teacher and a writer, if he could help me out, so you now have a collection of stories which are awesome. Some of them show you how to get a grade 5 or 6, because you aren't all ready for grade 7, 8 and 9.But follow the tips in this book, and you will be. Because after every story, I show you 10-15 skills in the story. They'll train you to be a writer.And it's OK if you don't want to be brilliant at writing stories, you just want to pass the exam. Because you can just remember a couple, and reproduce them in the exam. Yes, really. That's totally ok, and legal. And you'll find your brain changes them anyway as you write because that's what brains do.So, if you feel the exam grind has drained all the creativity out of education - I've got the cure. Try it.

Have you ever wanted to write a story, but you didn't know how? Or are you good at writing stories, but stuck for ideas? Are you currently writing a story, but you have writers block? Well, have I got the book for you friend. I can call you friend because we've just built up a rapport with my rhetorical questions. This is a book chock full of writing prompts. These are little things that will help you along to writing some amazing stuff that spills out of your mind. You're wondering: "But what kind of prompts are they? I've seen writing prompts before, but they're all lame." That's a good thing to be wondering, friend. I've crafted and homebrewed only the finest of prompts for your pleasure. You won't be confined to any one genre, you'll find a limitless amount of prompts ranging from comedy to serious to horror. I say limitless, but I meant 1,000 prompts precisely. I said 1,000 precisely, but there's slightly more if you count the introduction. Listen, friend, I promise not to fib from this point on. The book is split into a few sections: Beginners Writing Prompts (it's a super short section, don't worry); Constrained Writing (that's where you are forced into absolutely specific criteria for the prompt); Flash Fiction (either a word count or a time count is imposed upon you); Ripper Prompts (you are given a list of items for "Random Item Prompts"); and the bulk of the book ends with basic writing prompts with which you can write as much as you please with no tricks! If you're still reading this description, allow me to tell you more uses for this book: Creative writing classes! Yes, teachers, I've done the work for you. I'll even let you lie and say the prompts were crafted in your mind. Corporate synergy teams! That's right, group building exercise makers, you can relax in your fine leather chair and state that you know just how to get the company working together. Present some of these writing prompts and you'll be a hit. Temporarily disenfranchised millionaire authors in waiting! Your hit novel is contained in one of these prompts, I'm certain of it! Use this book for scripts, for blogs, for journals, for impressing potential clients. Otherwise I am sure it would make an attractive door wedge! Have I used enough exclamation marks to convince you? No? Check out these sections and be dazzled...

This book is not for dummies, but it is a guide for the modern indie author. Big Publishing spends big bucks on professional copywriters who make terrible books sound good. Meanwhile, indie authors can't get traction for their remarkable books, and inferior pulp with more spit and polish takes the spotlight. Most authors suck at writing sales and marketing copy for their own books. Not because they're terrible writers, but because writing copy is completely different from writing a book. The good news is these new skills can be learned. This book teaches the modern indie author how to write awesome sales copy. It's full of real techniques and easy to follow processes, not just theory and random examples that leave you struggling to find the connection. Best of all, it's just the right size to allow you to put these ideas to work immediately--and start selling more books!

‘What a great book and what an achievement. I loved it. It’s pithy (in a sharp way), at times funny and at times heart-breaking but always optimistic. Above all, it’s inspirational.’ —Bob Selden, bestselling author of What to Do When You Become the Boss After a failed suicide attempt, author Hedley Derenzie decided rather than escaping life, she would write her way through it, every day for the next thirty-one days. What started out as a simple yet challenging exercise soon turned into a life-changing adventure. It became an exploration of the creative process and what it means to find true fulfilment. Write Way Home is a personal, engaging story about one writer’s quest to navigate her way back from the brink with the help of a daily creative practice. Written in clear and simple language, it offers insights and practical suggestions to anyone who might be feeling stuck or lost and looking for a way out — as in, a way back to life.

Im one of the most popular girls in my class. I was born on October 15, 2003, in Charleston, South Carolina. This book is written to help young writers like myself in the twenty-first century. Therere many reasons to write this book; primarily, I used it as a tool to pass the time while waiting for mom to pick me up from the Boys and Girls Club, where kids go when their parents work the late hours. I know Moms work is very important; other moms think so. Shes the manager of Annas Linen Store. I know mom enjoys her job; I would if I were older. This book is very comprehensive, I think, and addresses most of my life. Each part will connect with my family and my best friends around the world. Most of all, it places special emphasis on how hard it was to write it. You know, I estimated that there are over 200 members in my family. I dont know each of them, but when I complete this book, I hope to be able to call each by their correct name. Also, I hope to be able to ask them many questions about the role that they play in my life, at our upcoming Thanksgiving dinner, which will be at my sweet Uncle Elliss house.
