Cinta Garcia de la Rosa has obviously thought it through, and taken the time to set her ideas down in conversational, accessible form. Her new book, "Groovy Cool Writing Techniques" is a lot like sitting down with a favorite writing friend and talking about writing. Cinta's cheerful narrative acknowledges the bugaboos that plague us all, from self-doubt to lack of ideas to just not knowing how to begin or end. Then she happily shares fun exercises, examples and encouragement to get the ideas and ink flowing.
Along the way, Cinta peppers her narrative with anecdotes from her own and others' writing experience, and wonderful gems like "That'swhy the job of writer is so difficult: it requires pushing a tornado through a keyhole without reducing it to a mere breeze."
“Pushing a tornado through a keyhole" -- Love it. So true, and so hard, but Cinta's book offers some great clues as to how it's done.
I wrote the Foreword to this delicious book, and so you’ll read some of these thoughts, and a much more thorough accounting of the book there (I hope), so I will try to keep things briefer here. I did not go into writing a Foreword for this (then) unpublished book on writing without trepidation. Ms. Garcia de la Rosa herself is an outstanding writer, yet doing and teaching do not always equate. I was a bit nervous that a book on writing might not be commensurate with her brilliant prose.
But it was! I myself, as a writer, do not believe writer’s block as anything more than a symptom of a real problem (stress, health issues, money problems, death in the family, etc.). But the key is I never thought you could force a “break” unless the root cause was controlled. Cinta’s book proves otherwise. She gives even me hope that to bust through the brick wall that is the blank page is not only doable, it can be fun!
If you are a writer, you need this book. Period. It should be amongst your few, most important books, near your computer (or whatever instrument you use to write your work). It is a gem. Period.
The rest I will leave for you to read from me in the Foreword, because my feelings have not changed on what a wonderful book this is for the craft. But let me say for the record that it was an HONOR to be asked to write it, and that should tell you something about the nature of this book and its invaluableness to the writer!
I really enjoyed this novel- it felt like the author was having a conversation with me- that than telling me- if that makes sense- I found it very easy to follow, and again a real enjoyable read- and ideal for authors looking to improve their writing craft- or aspiring authors.
okay- here goes- this book is full of advice, tips, and personal quotes ie (one of the authors favourite writers) its nice because all these little things make the novel more personal. my review is 5*s, its the sort of book you need to read once- then re-read to make notes-
the author tackles writers block- we are told this is perfectly normal, and then goes on to tell us little tips on how it can be prevented, there are some fun activities to do- to imagine- very cleaver.
the author touches upon visualization techniques, (which again is a must for authors) we have to picture characters, settings, really get inside a characters head before we can begin to write.
The dreaded first drafts. The writer shares tit-bits of what she learnt whilst she was set in Oxford university on her creative writing course. The author gives us some fun tasks to try that will help with the dreaded first draft- I like how the author constantly gives the reader support- writers do hit stumbling blocks, and I guess its nice from one author to another to say its perfectly normal- keep going- the author doesn't say it is going to be a walk in the park- we're told its not easy, ideas aren't just going to fall from the sky- we have to dig deep- keep writing- we control our own creativity-
imagining a characters past- oh that's interesting- the whys, the wherefores, what makes characters tick, predictability is touched upon also.. the big question why...
gosh I've made so many bullet points about this book, but I don't want to give too much away- what I liked about this book - I love the way the author speaks to the readers- she has hit the audience perfectly, there is just enough information for each point- the author goes on to say how important it is to hook the reader-
to be honest- I don't read these types of books- so this was a lovely change for me- i thought it would be more- telling us what to do- but wow how wrong was I- the book is full of invaluable techniques for writers- whatever stage of their writing career - the author tells you how it is- no messing- straight to the point- a defo must read :D
I was given this ARC in exchange for a honest review.
This is wonderful book to have at your side when writing. I'm a reader not a writer, but I found this book very informational. I think every writer learns something new all the time, just as readers do. From time to time they need advice, I only know this from having lots of author friends. This author refers to everyday ways to help you through what ever your having problems with, for instance, writers block. I love the ways she explains to get through writers block. This book is just full of great advice, I totally recommend this book to authors and wanna be authors. As a matter of fact her forward was written by a author who said "he'll keep this book by his side to refer to when writing". The author says "nobody said this was going to be easy" so download this book for lots of great advice.
