Full time writers need a constant supply of fresh ideas so that their stories and articles will catch an editor’s eye. But how easy are ideas to catch? The truth is that ideas rain down on us, mostly when we aren’t expecting them. But most people have very big umbrellas, which ideas bounce off without being noticed. Ideas are tricky things. They’re ephemeral. You can’t see them, or take hold of them. They’re also invisible, but like radio waves, they’re everywhere. So if you need to capture them, then this book is for you. Linda’s book will show you not only how to catch the ideas, but how to turn those ideas into stories and articles, how to deal with writer’s block and how to make your twist endings work. If you yearn for easy-to-read no-nonsense advice, then The Writer’s Treasury of Ideas is for you!
Linda Lewis is a full time writer, concentrating mainly on short stories which are regularly published in the UK and Australia. Her first novel, The Magic of Fishkeeping, was published in 2011, but she has a clutch of non-fiction works, mainly practical guides to help other writers fine-tune their skills and successfully get published. Linda regularly lectures and runs courses on writing across the country. She also has the distinction of winning the television show The Weakest Linkwhich, in itself, must have been a source of many interesting ideas!
