ISBN 0844259004 / 9780844259000 / 0-8442-5900-4Find This Book
This work leads students on an exploration of their everyday lives to find inspiration and ideas. Over forty invention exercises show students how to mine their creativity to find gold-creative writing gold-even in the murky bubbles of the kitchen sink. A variety of prewriting tools make it easy for students to dig in and get started, from freewriting and free association to puzzles and computer gaming. Invention exercises spark creativity by using experiences, behaviors, and objects that students are very familiar with, such as family, routines, work, travel, and romance. "Everyday Creative Writing" also shows students how to assess the quality of what they have written, and provides guidelines for submitting finished work for publication. [via]
