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 Prompts Ghost Story Workbook This book is unique. Instead of the usual sentence prompts, I took the first sentence from published ghost / paranormal stories for your inspiration (prompt). The prompts are from well and unknown authors. The fun is to use their first opening sentences as your story's first opening sentence. Oh, how clever, right? Yes, it is true that these first sentences could start just about any story, but knowing it came from an actual ghost story, that makes it more fun. Plus, after you write the story, follow the link to read the actual story. 25 first sentence prompts 3.5 pages for your story link to read the actual story from the prompts This book is perfect for book clubs, writers in the midst of writer's block and teachers requiring the perfect book for their creative writing college course (think of all the different ways these sentence can be created into stories ~ and have students compare ~ then read the actual story!). How about each member of a writer's group contributes one / two sentences to each prompt? Think of the ghostly winding roads it will take. Misspell? No problem! Its your book to be creative, silly, imaginative, and of course, scary. Erase, scribble? No problem! It's your book to have fun. Your ghost book / novel may start in this workbook!

An in-depth study of the vital principles from the best-selling Cracking the Communication Code now in workbook form. Communication between couples has been dissected in thousands of books and articles so why does it remain the number one marriage problem? "Because," says Dr. Emerson Eggerichs, "most spouses don't know that they speak two different languages. They are sending each other messages in 'code,' but they won't crack that code until they see that she listens to hear the language of love and he listens to hear the language of respect." Dr. Eggerichs' best-selling book, Love and Respect, launched a revolution in how couples relate to each other. Now with the Cracking the Communication Code companion workbook, the message of this hardcover trade book can be studied and applied whether for a group or for individual couples. The result will be better communication, mutual understnding, and a successful godly marriage.
