5.0 out of 5 stars An essential read for writers everywhere, 10 July 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Writing on Both Sides of the Brain (Paperback)
I am a professional writer and until l read this book l didn't realise that l have been doing it incorrectly for all these years! The author suggests that we have two brains a `left brain' and a `right brain'. The right side is associated with creativity and flare whilst the left side is associated with analytical thinking and criticism. The author suggests that writer's block often occurs when we try and use both sides of the brain simultaneously -- we should first allow the creative side to take over and only when we have a good first draft should we allow the critical left side take over. In the real world this means that we should not write, for example, two sentences, stop and check our grammar spelling and readability, but instead we should write 2 or 3 paragraphs then check over the content. It sounds so simple but it really does work and for me at least has resulted in a faster working pace and enhanced creativity.
