Product Description

Written in 1989, this classic work is written for people who want or have to write to learn how to write better and enjoy it more. Designed for creative writers as well a composition and homiletics classes, this guide emphasizes conscious, informed choices when writing. Written as a text, rather than a practical guidebook, chapters focus on the art of writing, the inspiration that comes and goes, the effort that must be made in order to write well, the history of the English language and its proper use, handling rejection, and more.

While this book is written from a Christian perspective, it references adult topics in writing, and therefore parents may wish to preview for any high school students.

Publisher's Description

Crammed with crucial facts, ideas, and warnings never before brought together into clear focus, this guide is not only fun to read, but also work-boots practical. Not only inspiring, but pinch-penny accurate. Not only optimistic, but report-card candid. Not only kindly, but tattle-tale frank. It is an energizing tonic for writers' weary brain cells. Every writer is important. Creative Writing for People Who Can't Not Write is a book for every writer. Topics in this lively blend of advice, inspiration, and scholarly wit include: - the wonder of creativity - getting published, paid, and read - why writing should be impossible - how to avoid looking foolish in print - a sugar-coated history of the whimsical, word-rich English language - the nature of poetry - the sixteen writer-type temperaments - reflections from contemporary writers on their work - a first-ever collation of pages of advice from C.S. Lewis. Lewis once wrote to Lindskoog, "If you understand me so well, you will understand other authors, too." Writers who read Creative Writing for People Who Can't Not Write will agree with Lewis' assessment of Kathryn Lindskoog's insight into the writing life. And this book also passes Lindskoog's own test: "A good writer is a graceful guest in a reader's brain."

Author Bio

Kathryn Lindskoog was an accomplished teacher of writing who published all her adult life in a variety of magazines and journals and taught at several institutions, including Rancho Santiago College, Biola University, and Fuller Theological Seminary. She was the author of many books, among them The C.S. Lewis Hoax, How to Grow a Young Reader, C.S. Lewis: Mere Christian, The Gift of Dreams, and The Lion of Judah in Never-Never Land.
