About the Book
A writer will do anything to avoid the act of writing, William Zinsser wrote in his classic On Writing Well.

To improve as writers we have to hone our skills by putting words on the page, consistently. The 33 exercises in this book will help you do just that.

In the process, you will produce a draft for your own book and decide to complete that other manuscript you have been wrestling with.

A Work in Progress: Exercises in Writing started as a personal challenge that helped me win the struggle with my first book Running Shoes Are a Girl's Best Friend.

Combining advice and encouragement from my favourite books on writing I committed to producing 2000 words a day for 10 consecutive days.

I wrote for quantity and found the result had potential quality. This is my third book. Let's get started on yours!
