Format: Paperback
This is a delightfully easy book to read and work with. There is a different topic given for each day of the year,(and extra) all are challenging, inspiring and enjoyable. The topics are sandwiched between loads of tips and advise on the various aspects of writing all through the book. It is extremely encouraging, I love the fact that it induces no guilt feelings. If this book were a fruit it would be a delicious, juicy, ripe mango.

24 of 25 people found the following review helpful By Rebecca Brown on 18 Feb. 2001
Format: Paperback
In her Introduction, Judy Reeves reminisces about a writing practice session when the topic was Footprints. In a trice I was off to my keyboard to tap out that image, carried with me all these years, of an immaculately vacuumed brand new carpet upon which I had, unthinkingly, just walked.
This book contains a year in the writing life: each month contains a Guideline; a discussion of subjects such as How To Start; Perfectionism; Slow Down etc. The Beyond Practice sections are about A Writing Date or Cafe Writing; Hot Nights/Wild Women(For Men Too)or Writing Marathons. Hundreds of rousing exercises for the slothful writer, curious snippets of literary lore & legend abound & it's all in good fun & eminently useful!
This is a keeper, one your local writers would be glad to own! Do check out my full review.

Format: Paperback
If you want to be a writer, you have to write. You can't just think about writing or dream that someday you may put words down on paper. You also can't expect that you'll sit down and in three weeks you'll have the next great American novel. No, you have to write.
A Writer's Book of Days looks to create a writing habit. Writing needs to be done everyday, a regular writing appointment so to speak. Pen to paper. Write to write, not necessarily working on one particular piece but writing whatever happens to be on your mind, without editing or judgements. In the process, you will learn about how you write, your writing style, and what you have to say to the world.

A Writer's Book of Days is a wonderful resource for those dreaming of becoming a writer. It gives them a place to start and encourages them to practice and play with words. I think it also teaches them the important lesson that good writing comes in cycles and spurts.

This is one of those books you must have if you're a writer. It is packed to the top with tips from famous writers. It understands the process inside and out and tells you how it is, warts and all, and how to fix those warts and all. A writer recommended it to me years ago and I couldn't remember the title until I found it one day on Amazon. Thank goodness it came back to me.

I was a little impatient to get this book, but I found it worth the wait. I am using it together with a writing course and its hints and tips on kick starting writing,and daily tips to keep you going are a useful guide. It is well written and easy to follow, so it isn't necessary to be doing a writing course to use it.
