Publisher Description

Ever have problems brainstorming a book with just yourself? Can’t break out of those old, familiar tropes and stereotypes? The Writer’s Brainstorming Kit, Thinking in New Directions is your solution to rejuvenate your writing and kick those old, worn-out ideas to the curb.

In this digital version of the kit, you won’t receive a deck of cards as you do with the print version. Instead, the authors show you how to use a regular deck of playing cards to accomplish the same thing. With a random draw of the cards, you can break out of your old linear way of thinking and be challenged to create new characters and character traits, determine their internal and external conflicts, and create an original plot, complete with the character’s ordinary world, the trigger event, turning points, and the black moment and resolution.

No idea how to start putting together a story? No problem—the book can help you create one. Stuck in the middle of a story and don’t know what motivates your characters or what happens next? Draw a card, and let the suggestions spur original ideas.

Whether you’re writing short stories, novellas, or novels, this book, combined with your own deck of playing cards, can help you think in new, exciting directions. Get your copy and try it today!

Praise from users of the system:

“The Writer’s Brainstorming Kit seemed like a truly dumb idea, until I started using it.  Now I wouldn’t be without it.  I can’t recommend it highly enough.  Every writer I’ve shared it with wants to steal mine, but I tell them they have to buy their own.  So should you.  It is marvelous.”  — Carolyn McSparren, award-winning romance author

“The Writer’s Brainstorming Kit will join your dictionary and your thesaurus as a must-have tool for the writing trade.  After the first time, you’ll wonder how you ever wrote without it!”  — Laura Hayden, romance novelist
