By Sparkie moving on Like so many other people I know there is a novel inside me trying very hard to get out! Because it has been years since I've written anything besides emails and work reports, I wanted to brush up on my creative writing skills. I know with the internet you can find most things - but I'm old enough to want a physical book that I could read, make notations, highlight and go back to whenever I needed. This book offers basic easy to read and understand guidelines. I thought I'd end up buying several different books like this one, but I don't think I need them. I'm far from my goal of writing everyday but as I go through the process this book will be with me for the journey! 1 of 1 people found the following review helpful. The Guide for Writers By Kathy Lanzarotti Shut Up and Write is an invaluable guide, and is a must-have for anyone who wants to get serious about writing. Judy Bridges' insight and guidance is critical for writers of all levels(Chapter 10: A Hatful of Rabbits should be required reading for anyone interested in writing successfully). It is full of encouraging advice that will get even the most reluctant authors to pick up a pen . Shut Up and Write is written in a light and entertaining style by a writer who truly loves the craft and is generous enough to share her talent and knowledge with the rest of us. 1 of 1 people found the following review helpful. Delightfully informative! By Annie Judy Bridges captures the best of "how to write" with a style of writing that models the information. The book is practical, contains all the basics and could easily be used as a text for a writing class or a guide book for the person seeking to begin or improve their writing. I have read many "how to" writing books. This one goes to the head of the class. See all 19 customer reviews...
You've wanted to write for years, but something always gets in the way. "There's not enough time." "My family comes first." "I don't have anything important to say." Well, Judy Bridges, who runs the Redbird Studio writing center in Milwaukee, has some advice: Shut Up & Write! That's the title of her new book, a combination of tough-love coaching and humor that inspires and shows you how to become the writer you want to be. And, though it sounds like boot camp, the book is as encouraging as it is practical. In her workshops, Bridges has helped a brigade of writers--6,000, she says--to follow their dreams, and many have gone on to publication. Now, she's put her years of experience as a teacher into this concise, helpful handbook. The first chapters gently push readers to get started. Forget all the reasons you can't write and dive in. The most valuable lessons are how to get ideas and develop them into some kind of writing--fiction, memoir, essays or magazine articles. The take-aways are writing without editing and writing from inside. Don't try to sound important--just write from "deep in your belly." This concept is a key element in her approach. She later shows you how to take what's inside yourself and turn it into a story. Bridges devotes several chapters to writing fiction, and she has devised effective exercises for developing characters, narrative drive, scenes and tone. I applaud her for tackling--in her section on nonfiction--what is probably the most common mistake editors face: unorganized material. You do the research, get all this great information, but how do you organize it? Bridges suggests an "alligator outline," which looks like a sentence diagram but includes key information such as your readers, message and main points. She likes charts and relies heavily on them in her exercises, which become ever more complex with each page. If you're like me and not into that kind of thing, just focus on the points she's making and devise your own way of incorporating them into your work. Bridges also includes the preliminaries of forming a writing group, revising and getting published. In the category of what every writer needs to hear at one time or another is her chapter "A Hatful of Rabbits: When the Going Gets Tough," a down-to-earth, honest look at incorporating writing into daily life. Can anyone be a writer? Maybe not. But you won't know if you can be one if you don't try. As Bridges says, "You want to write? What's stopping you?" --Elfrieda Abbe, publisher of The Writer - September 2011 issueEncouraging, humorous, straight-talking. Shut Up & Write! is one of the best books I've read on writing. Judy Bridges' no-nonsense voice becomes your portable mentor. Own it, read it, mark it up, laugh with it, and reread it throughout your writing career. --Shauna Singh Baldwin, author of English Lessons, What the Body Remembers, The Tiger Claw, and We Are Not in PakistanShut Up & Write! is filled with such practical information and sincere understanding that it's about to become every writer's best friend. The author's narrative style is itself a model for all writers. --Chris Roerden, author of Don't Murder Your Mystery and Don't Sabotage Your Submission About the Author Judy Bridges is one of the few people who can say, "Shut Up and Write!" in a way that makes you smile. A renowned mentor and coach, she earned her living as a writer before founding Redbird Studio writing center in Milwaukee, WI, in 1993. She taught (and learned from) over 6,000 aspiring and accomplished writers of all ages, helping them write fiction, nonfiction, plays and corporate communications. As a writer and teacher, Judy shares her wisdom with a no-nonsense, humorous voice that makes writing accessible and reading her book a joy.
