Ideas to Go

Ideas to Go (2007) Post 410

 Ideas to Go was one of my earlier how-to books, which grew from workshops I present at schools and other writers' venues. Ideas to Go presents several different ways to generate ideas, and how to spin an idea into a story. It was a companion to the other books in the series Plots and Plotting, Characters and Characterisation, Dialogue and Writing with Style. All these books and quite a few others have now been updated, expanded and included in my bumper how-to book Everything You Want to Know About Writing and More, Much More (2016) For some reason, Blogger won't let me put a photo in this post. It doesn't say why, so I can't fix it.


Sally is Sally Odgers; author, manuscript assessor, editor, anthologist and reader. She runs and Prints Charming Books. (Sally is me, by the way, and I am lots of other things too, but these are the relevant ones for now.)

The goal for 2017 was to write a post a day profiling the background behind one of my books; how it came to be written, what it's about, and any things of note that happened along the way. If you're an author, an aspiring author, a reader or just someone who enjoys windows into worlds, you might find this fun. The books are not in any special order, but will be assigned approximate dates, and pictures, where they exist. 2017 is now behind us, but I ran out of year before running out of books, so the blog will continue for at least the next month or so.


Thanks for reading
