About the book:

These 45 enjoyable "invention exercises," drawing on everyday experiences, could help novice and experienced writers strike gold. Virtually anything that the writer encounters can be valuable, once touched by their creative efforts and marked with their individual signature. In Panning for Gold in the Kitchen Sink the reader will find the prospecting tools of the trade - from freewriting and free association to puzzles and computer gaming. Creativity will be spurred writing exercises based on everyday life - from domestic chores, daily routines and family relationships to the outside world of work, travel and romance. Examples of writing based on the exercises are included together with published works that relate to the topies. The book is for writers - beginning or advanced, committed or dabbling - who wish to discover the worlds of fiction, poetry and creative non-fiction. In addition to inspiration, this book provides helpful recommendations for evaluating work for freshness and originality as well as guidance on such practical issues as getting work published and overcoming writer's block.
