Improv instructor and writer Jorjeana Marie presents the first book to harness the creative power of improvisation exercises to help both aspiring and seasoned authors defeat writer's block and generate new ideas.
Suffering from writer's block and inner critics? Having trouble generating ideas for plots, settings, and characters? Introducing the rules and techniques of improvisation as they apply to fiction writing, improv instructor and writer Jorjeana Marie addresses each major element of storytelling by applying writer's-block-busting games and inner-critic-quieting exercises to get the creative ideas flowing. Armed with the power of improv--and freeing exercises like Ad Agency, Your Local Library, and Family Portraits--you'll soon be an idea machine. With Improv for Writers, your creative storytelling well will never run dry again. (Ten Speed Press)
