Angela Booth Launches New Edition of the Easy Write Process
Top copywriter and writing teacher Angela Booth has launched a new expanded edition of her popular writing guide, The Easy-Write Process, which was first published in 2006.
Angela Booth's Easy-Write Process was first published in 2006, and proved immediately popular with writers. Angela developed the guide over many years of working with students who were plagued by fear and self-doubt, and procrastinated over their writing. She's launched a new edition, which has been completely revised and expanded.
The Easy-Write Workbook, a workbook of writing prompts and fun exercises to use with the process, will follow in June.
From her own experiences, and those of her students, Angela knows that writers can be their own worst enemy when it comes to getting words onto the page. They over-think their writing, and expect too much from themselves. Both new and established writers struggle with similar challenges.
Angela says that when she started writing professionally, over 30 years ago, she struggled too. "Thinking back," she says, "I'm surprised that I didn't give up writing, because I found it so difficult. I know now that if I'd been kinder to myself, not only would I have enjoyed writing more, I would have been more successful too. I gave up on projects too easily, when I couldn't see a way forward."
Many myths surround the writing process. New writers sometimes believe that quality writing demands a huge struggle. The truth is that writing is a relatively simple sequential process. Creativity comes first, then at a later stage, logic and some objectivity.
When students work with the Easy Write Process, Angela says, they begin to recognize the various mind states they're in when they write.
"Once they recognize that the mind state they're in when they're creating is very different from the mind state they use to edit," Angela says, "it's a major step forward. They feel more in control, and enjoy writing more, because they achieve more. They become more prolific, and writing becomes fun, rather than a struggle."
Angela is currently working on the Easy-Write Process Workbook with several of her students. The workbook will be available in June. The writing prompts and exercises in the workbook developed from Angela's own writing exercises, as well as her work with her personal coaching students.
