Now Write!

Does your fiction need a boost? My friends Tania Casselle and Sean Murphy were asked to contribute to the book NOW WRITE! Fiction Writing Exercises from Today’s Best Writers and Teachers published by Tarcher/Penguin this month.

In addition to great material from Tania and Sean, the book includes lots of inspiring ideas from authors like Robert Olen Butler, Steve Almond, Alison Lurie, Amy Bloom etc.

There’s a direct link to the book from Tania’s website: or it can be found in the usual bookstores.

Here’s some writing practice prompts plucked from the book title/chapters:

          Now Write!
          A map to anywhere
          Once upon a time
          Look backward, angel
          Why I stole it
          A very, very long sentence
