A Unique Blend of Inspiration and Instruction…

"It's like participating in a fact-filled, fast-paced, fun writer's workshop… providing inspiration for writers of all levels of experience…"

· Each of seven chapters focuses on an easy to-follow key to becoming a more powerful writer: including clear, step-by-step instructions on how to write a powerful short story, drawn from either personal experience (non-fiction) or purely from the realm of the imagination (fiction).

· Packed with inspiring examples, each chapter also offers numerous suggested topics to write about, all of which are designed to get you fired up to do some powerful writing of your own.

· Author/artist Caroline Joy Adams has added her unique touch to this book, in the form of beautifully rendered calligraphic quotations on the art of writing woven throughout the text, making this a wonderful gift-book for everyone who loves to write--or wants to write. So give it to yourself, or to a friend, and then let your words just start flowing.

The one book that should be on every writer's bookshelf. If The Power to Write doesn't inspire you to start writing, and motivate you to keep writing, NOTHING WILL!
