With the help of The Writing Notebook: City you’ll be able to write about your time in any city, or write a novel set in a real or imagined city, or work on your book about a specific place, be it Paris, Mumbai, or Buenos Aires.
For first-time writers or experienced authors, The Writing Notebook will take you to surprising places, spark your imagination, and be your guide to writing your next book.
The only way to write a book is to write it. That's what The Writing Notebook is for. As a guide and workspace, the Writing Notebook offers you writing prompts and activities, suggestions for structuring your book, and enough blank pages in which to start writing it. With description workouts, list-making exercises, a reading list, and ideas for cover design, you’ll never be at a loss for inspiration wherever you are.
The Writing Notebook: City will prompt you to explore some of the following themes in your book:
Quests in the city
The city by day and night
Lines of work and desire
The past’s impact on the present
Types of spaces and journeys
Mapping the city and the story
The challenges of urban life
Newcomers and bygone days
