Sandy Larsen enjoys encouraging young writers of any ability level. She has been a professional freelance writer for over 25 years. Sandy also teaches a personalized online writing course at www.writingtutoronline.com.Review:
Igniting Your Writing is written with energy and that touch of humor that makes you smile even as you're wrestling your reluctant writer into that chair. The exercises are designed to cultivate interest. For example, at the moment I have the book turned to a lesson on "Understatement" in the section treating with "Lively Language." I swear the author was listening in at our house. Twenty-four sessions designed to "enliven and inspire young writers" live up to their promise. Suited for non-writers, enthusiastic young authors, and anyone in between, Igniting Your Writing does just what the title says. Highly recommended! --Virginia Jones, Eclectic Homeschool Online
Whatever situation you face in your home, Igniting Your Writing can help to bring more joy and inspiration to the writing process. Author Sandy Larsen begins the book with clear instructions to parents/teachers on how to use Igniting Your Writing. I really like Sandy's emphasis on the writing process -- the rough draft, rewriting, editing and final draft. The entertaining lessons provide a nice break from more tedious language arts studies. Sandy's passion for encouraging and inspiring young writers is evident throughout this helpful (and lively) course! --Cindy Prechtel, Homeschooling From The Heart
