'52 Dates for Writers' is a small but immensely helpful book, reminding writers of the need to inject interest, movement and colour into their narratives- and giving them the tools- and the permission- to do so.Speaking as a desk-bound author who is apt to work too hard, one of the most useful realisations is that doing different things, and even doing ordinary tasks differently, refreshes the whole writing journey, so that in fact, no new insight or experience is a waste of time.

Like most things in life, writing is a process, and while every writer will have their own individual techniques and tricks to get them to the firs stage, there are some commonalities that are universal- one of which is that sometimes you need to leave your desk and look at everythin from a new approach.

And 52 DATES FOR WRITERS- RIDE A TANDEM, ASSUME AN ALIAS, AND 50 OTHER WAYS TO IMPROVE YOUR NOVEL DRAFT by Claire Wingfield, is the perfect reference book for writers at every stage of their writing.From going on a Ferris Wheel to help you gain a different vantage point for describing your scenes, to attending a sports event to experience the atmosphere and rivalry first hand so that you can later relay it in your work, there really is something for every writer.

For any writer, who is reluctant to get his/her creative juices flowing, this nove could be an excellent starting point- you read one chapter and you complete the exercise and keep progressing from thereon.

It is a nove to help you improve your writing skills giving you new ideas of ways to think, see, hear and then write.There are 52 ideas of places to visit, to see a place with fresh eyes, to listen to dialogue in crowded venues, to listen to the peace and tranquility of others.

Re-reading some of my work it made me ask myself, what do I want my eader to see, share with me, or what do I want them to anticipate and interpret in their own pat.
