Are you looking how to:

· Recover from writer's block
· Conquer burnout
· Learn to be more productive during precious writing time
If so, consider picking up a copy of THINKING WRITE.

Kelly Stone wrote THINKING WRITE as a companion to her book, TIME TO WRITE. After coaching writers in how to make time to write by carving out a few minutes here and there, Kelly knew she had to provide a means to capitalize on every precious moment. THINKING WRITE contains all the information writers need to tap into their creative river. By training the brain using the methods in THINKING WRITE, writers can instantly tune into their innate creativity.

The book begins by introducing writers to their greatest tool, their minds. Writers learn how the mind relates to writers' creativity. Accessing the subconscious mind is how to tap into creativity. Several methods are presented, and writers are encouraged to select the one that works for them. A CD of creative meditations accompanies this book to provide a little extra help. Once the subconscious is open, it can be programmed to respond to triggers that act as switches. When presented with the trigger, writers can instantly tap into their creativity. Think of this as creativity on demand.

Great review, Tammy. Kelly Stone is a godsend for writers. I'm 3/4 through "Time to Write" and loving it. Looks like I'll have to get a copy of "Thinking Write" next. Thanks for sharing it with us.
