Dr Gillie Bolton, author of 12 books on writing including The Writer’s Key: Introducing Creative Solutions for Life.
Barbara maps the dangerous journey from intuitive 'free-fall' writing to consciously created fiction, making it exhilarating; a lucid, well researched and clearly illustrated guide we can safely follow. A fitting companion to her strongly recommended Writing Without a Parachute.
Debra Penman, co-author of Writing Well: Creative Writing and Mental Health
Not so much dipping the toe into writing as taking the plunge, in this book, Barbara Turner-Vesselago guides us through the heart of the creative process, using experiential exercises and practical tips to enable the aspiring writer to develop a 'first draft' into a more expanded and refined piece of work. I have wanted to write for years...this book made me feel that I can't wait to start!
