The Craft of Creative Writing
JANUARY 3, 2018
The Craft of Creative Writing. For 2017, my super awesome Secret Santa, Michelle, gave me a book by Dani Shapiro, titled, “Still Writing – The Perils and Pleasures of a Creative Life.” In her book, Dani compares the beginning of the writing process to a jigsaw puzzle. If I’m writing a press release, I like to start with the headline, subhead and first sentence of the intro paragraph. The key is to find an outside reader that you trust with your writing.
