THE WRITER’S TREASURY OF IDEAS

I have no trouble coming up with ideas for short stories which is lucky as I need to write at least six a month. When I realised that other people don’t find it as easy as I do, I wrote this book. It’s basically ‘a teach yourself how to find ideas’ book. All kinds of different ways to generate plots are described, plus there are exercises and examples, designed to get your mind buzzing with ideas.
