Back to Creative Writing School

I recently read Bridget Whelan's ebook, Back to Creative Writing School which is available as a Kindle ebook for all of £1.70.

I have to say it is one of the most inspiring and unusual How To books I have ever read, and I whole-heartedly recommend it. So do many other people - go and take a look at her Amazon reviews!

It's formatted like a school year - 3 terms, 10 weeks per term, and a lesson for each week including exercises to inspire and energise you.

Some exercises are very quick, others would take an afternoon of solid work. They all look worth doing, and I think I'm going to need to take a year off and do the entire course! Whether you're a new writer wanting to get going and learn some skills, or a jaded and faded writer getting long in the tooth, I think this book won't fail to get you up and running, producing your best work ever.

10/10 to Bridget for this one. Gold stars, grade A*, first class honours degree - however you're scoring things this one comes out top.

Johnson returns to Liverpool squad
Agen Bola terpercaya reported - Liverpool are set to welcome full-back Glen Johnson back into their squad for Sunday's Premier League showdown with Swansea City.
The England international has missed the past month due to an ankle injury sustained in the 2-2 draw at home to Aston Villa, with manager Brendan Rodgers saying at the time that Johnson would miss an "indefinite" amount of time.
But Johnson is in contention to feature against Garry Monk's men at Anfield this weekend.
"Glen has been back training," As reported by City Holiday.
"According to him, he has felt as good as he has done for a long time - which is great. He has looked very good in training and he'll come into the squad."

Pjanic : Roma's style suits me

Agen Bola terpercaya reported - Miralem Pjanic says Rudi Garcia's influence is a major factor behind Roma's dramatic improvement and is enjoying the coach's style of play.
The Giallorossi started the campaign terrifically, winning their first 10 Serie A games and are well in contention for their first return to the Champions League since 2011.
Pjanic, 23, has been allowed more freedom in midfield playing ahead of Daniele De Rossi and Kevin Strootman in a midfield three and the Bosnian is relishing the more creative role in the team.
“Since Rudi Garcia arrived, maybe I'm more prominent,” As reported by City Holiday.
“My game is quite different from that at Lyon. I'm more mature and I have much more experience.
“It is true that the style of play suits me. It relies heavily on the midfield, Garcia lets us organise the game and he does not want us to play the long ball all the time. I have a lot more responsibilities.
