NINE WEEKS TO A FIRST DRAFT 9 JUICY WEEKS TO A WONDERFULLY IMPERFECT FIRST DRAFT: A CREATIVITY PROGRAM FOR WRITERS
Whenever I teach writing, I find that the hardest part for my students is getting first draft on the page and trusting that this first draft is allowed to be, in Anne Lamott's words, "shitty.". So I wrote an ebook designed to help screenwriters, playwrights, and even fiction writers put down their first draft. I've found that these techniques can really make writing a lot easier — you're still going to sweat, but the process will be a lot less painful. It may even be fun! Right now it's available as a Kindle ebook: Amazon.com: 9 Juicy Weeks to a Wonderfully Imperfect First Draft: A Creativity Program for Writers eBook: Brooke Berman: Kindle Store.
