This creative writing exercise begins with a description of someone's hands and then .

This creative writing exercise begins with a description of someone's hands and then prompts you to build on that description in unexpected ways. What If You Were Invisible? Young woman writing in pub. Justin Pumfrey, Getty Images. I found this prompt in Beth Baruch Joselow's Writing Without the Muse, but it just as easily could have come from Woody Allen's Alice. In it, you're asked to imagine a scene you might observe if you were invisible. Dictionary as a Generator.

Because creative writing has now taken off and has become this very widespread academic discipline it is beginning .

Because creative writing has now taken off and has become this very widespread academic discipline it is beginning to acquire its own canon of key works and key texts. This is one of the oldest of them. It’s a book that almost anyone who teaches creative writing will have read. I want to encourage them to make mistakes and not to be perfectionists, not to feel that everything they do has to be of publishable standard. The whole point of doing a course, especially a creative writing MA and attending workshops, is that you can treat the course as a sandpit.

The 60 excercises in Writing Without the Muse are designed to help writers get started on, and stick with, whatever they want to write. Many of these exercises are playful, because much creativity comes from play. Others introduce reliable writing habits that can help fuel the writing process. Some are for poets, some for fiction writers, and some for those who want to record the story of their lives. They are meant to be dipped into at will, shuffled around, altered, and shared with a friend. All have been tested in the kitchens (and studies) of students of writing, people of all ages who, like almost all of us, have something special to say. This new and revised edition also contains a brief introduction and responses from student writers.Beth Baruch Joselow is a creative writing teacher living in Washington, D.C.

She consistently challenges her students and helps them to do their best. I have often benefited from her suggestions in teaching my own classes."-Nan Fry, Associate Professor, The Corcoran School of Art

I used a copy in my writing class and found it so useful that I had to order my own. In its concise manner it was able to generate many new ideas for me and enlarge my view.

You are not a writer unless you write. This book offers a variety of exercises to get you going. The exercises are varied, straightforward, deceptively accessible, and fun. ("Deceptively accessible" because they are easy, not shallow.) When you don't want to write, they provide a painless way to get the literary gears moving!

Writing Without the Muse is small enough (and cheap enough) to drop in your laptop bag and take to your favorite writing spot. If I lost my copy, I would purchase another immediately. Buy this book, flip to an exercise that sounds fun, and write!

Writing Without the Muse is not just a teaching/learning tool, but a fun book to use when you've just plain run out of subjects or interesting topics to write about. And no matter what you have heard from others, I can guarantee you this will happen on one occasion or another. I love writing with a purple passion, but I sometimes need a kick start, and this slim volume works every time.
