This offers “the best bits” of four decades of a writer’s notebooks. Other sources such as the Google global zeitgeist 2013 were also used. The result is 55 categories useful to writers (the author has special skill in such analysis). It is a modern-day “cabinet of curiosities” that can add fire to any writing.This cornucopia is fresh. Entries offer a delightful browse: a thrilling cocktail including thought-provoking gems. Examples are:“G’day.”“gloopy”“Here be dragons.”“She be bitch woman.”“In the mist, the sky wept.”“solid, stocky, a bruiser – but rich.”“Your wedding ring and you are stardust.”“Just in case, she put on her new black knickers.”“All shall be well … and all manner of thing shall be well.”A bonus is advice especially for writers aspiring to their first publication. But experienced authors could also benefit. Practical tips abound. Topics include finding time and ideas, non-fiction articles and books, short stories, novels and poetry.
