Doodling for Writers
Drawing and doodling--in the margins, on napkins, anywhere--can contribute to your writing process and fuel your creativity.
In Doodling for Writers, memoirist and cartoonist Rebecca Fish Ewan combines her wit and wisdom with practical, engaging prompts and activities to illustrate how simple sketching can get you over hurdles, bring back memories, and even provide a roadmap for where your story needs to go.
Full of encouragement and anecdotes, Fish Ewan's cartoon-self--accompanied by a few sidekicks--will guide you through basics of drawing and then show you to how to apply it to your writing process through character sketches, place maps, and more.
In the author-illustrator's words, This book is not about getting writers to abandon their craft so they can become artists. For one, writing is an art form, so they're already artists. For two, this book is about letting drawing enrich their writing life, not replace it.
Pick up this book, pick up a pencil... and erase the notion that you can't draw.
