I found this book refreshing to read, at last, an inspirational and supportive approach. Great refreshing style and well presented. The ideas to generate 'that spark' are various and numerous and I would recommend it if you are starting or developing your writing. It covers a lot of ground but I think the emphasis of 'creative' is right. There are technical books if I want to know the intricacies of script writing or verse construction but they don't give the inspiration. This book does for me.

I have about a dozen craft books on writing and this is one of the ones I come back to time and again. It's an easy read format, has inspirational bits but also lots of practical bits like how to format speech. It covers stories, poetry and script and is the best all genre book I've come across.
