Book review: Everyday Writing

Everyday Writing by Midge RaymondEveryday Writing: Tips and Prompts to Fit Your Regularly Scheduled Life by Midge Raymond

Everyday Writing is a short e-book that promises to help people who want to write but who can never find the time. It’s divided into two parts. The first part offers tips to help readers start writing and keep writing. I thought a few of the tips were insightful, but for the most part, they seemed like common sense. The second part of the book offers many writing prompts. I like how the prompts are organized by how much time you have to write, from just a few minutes to a whole weekend. They are mostly geared toward fiction writers. I would recommend this book to beginning writers who are just starting to learn the routine that works best for them.

Other recommended writing books: Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life by Anne Lamott and Writing Down the Bones: Freeing the Writer Within, 2nd Edition by Natalie Goldberg
