9781618220110: Everyday Writing: Tips and Prompts to Fit Your Regularly Scheduled Life

"This invaluable collection of writing prompts and sage advice should be on every writer's shelf--and used!--alongside Anne Lamott's Bird by Bird and Stephen King's On Writing."
--Jenna Blum, author of New York Times & international bestsellers Those Who Save Us and The Stormchasers

"Practical and encouraging with refreshing touches of humor, Midge Raymond shows us how to use our everyday lives as material for our writing and offers intriguing prompts to get us started (from five minutes) and to keep us going (a weekend retreat)."
--Judy Reeves, author of A Writer's Book of Days

How to be a writer even when you can't write every day...

Writers are often told that in order to succeed, they must write every day--yet this isn't realistic or feasible for writers with families, day jobs, and other responsibilities that preclude a daily writing practice.

Everyday Writing is about how to be a writer every day, even if you're unable to sit down to write every day.

This book provides dozens of tips for busy writers, including how to create your ideal writing space, how to develop habits that work for you, and how to keep your projects moving forward even when you're short on time. Everyday Writing also offers more than 150 prompts to fit into any writer's life, from five-minute prompts you can do in a grocery store line to lengthy prompts that are perfect for a writing retreat. Whether you'd like to generate new material, free yourself from writer's block, or start a revision, these writing exercises provide a way to engage immediately with your work.

About the Author:

Midge Raymond has been a writer, editor, and teacher for more than twenty years and has been a creativity coach for more than a decade. She has created writing prompts for classes and workshops in settings from university classrooms to homeless shelters. Midge has taught at Boston University, Grub Street Writers, San Diego Writers, and Richard Hugo House, among others.

Midge's short story collection, Forgetting English, received the Spokane Prize for Short Fiction. Originally published by Eastern Washington University Press, the book has been reissued in an expanded edition by Press 53. Her stories have appeared in numerous literary journals and magazines--among them TriQuarterly, American Literary Review, Bellingham Review, Indiana Review, North American Review, Bellevue Literary Review, the Los Angeles Times magazine, and many others--and have received several Pushcart Prize nominations.

Midge writes about the writing life for such publications as The Writer as well as on her blog, Remembering English (midgeraymond. com/blog), which features a new writing prompt every week. For more information, visit Midge online at MidgeRaymond.com.

Review:

"Raymond writes in a way that gives the reader real hope that a writing life is possible...Everyday Writing is a book worth owning and pocketing for those who struggle to make time for writing."  --Portland Book Review

"Raymond has a gift for dispensing gentle, intelligent advice that even the most harried and overworked will find inspiring...Everyday Writing gives us permission to call ourselves writers, and found time to practice our craft." --The Writer magazine
