Item Description...
Beginning or completing any writing project can be highly daunting work. Faded with the often terrifying blank page, many writers find themselves frozen by indecision and doubt. Creativity Rules addresses these anxieties -- and the whole writing process -- through an extensive series of engaging exercises that allow the writer to break down a project into a collection of not-so-daunting "tasks" that put the writer directly and quickly into the act of writing.

Unlike many current books on the process of writing, Creativity Rules transcends dry-as-dust formulas or off-in-the-ether philosophies. It's a practical, witty and inviting kick in the pants that helps the writer approach a seemingly unconquerable project with a handy fistful of powerful, proven, nuts-and-bolts writing strategies that encourage creative flights of fancy.

From assessing what the writer wishes to accomplish through conceiving, outlining and developing a story, Creativity Rules provides sound, easily accessed tactics and exercises that are designed to make the act of writing both joyous and pain free.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
In a class by himself  Oct 24, 2004
No one writes like Vorhaus. His books are practical, funny, and they provide actionable techniques developed by professional working writers, not academics. I was feeling stuck and despairing before I revisited "Creativity Rules!" and now I'm back on track, generating ideas for characters, plots, etc. Vorhaus' genius lies in isolating techniques, breaking them down to small chunks that even a blockhead like me can understand. He then has you drill those chunks until you get fluent with them. Eminently useful and a pleasure to read. Not recommended for people who "would like to write someday"--this book is meant to be used by writers who write.
This is it!  Aug 14, 2003
I can't tell you how long I've been looking for this kind of information. All the theory I've read about stories seemed to make perfectly good sense until I sit down to actually write a solid story on my own. Then I suddenly start drowning in my own words, feeling often as though I am losing my mind (I'm not joking). This book holds all those insights and keys to good writing that have been eluding me for so long. And it's so simple! All I can say is bless this guy's soul for sharing this with the world. I cannot praise Vorhaus and his ridiculously simple book enough!

P.S. Another good book (especially for the intricacies of weaving a complex story) is Building Better Plots, by Robert Kernen.

A Must Read  Aug 4, 2002
"Creativity Rules" covers the fundamentals of writing compelling fiction and will absolutely unlock more of your creative potential. This book successfully teaches how to be more creative AND shows exactly how to flesh out the ideas into good stories.

John Vorhaus's books on writing are some of the only ones worth reading. Every writer owes it to himself and his readers to get this awesome tutorial.

For me, very helpful!  Sep 21, 2001
I recieved this book as a gift (Thank you, Raxum!) and from the first few minutes I worked from it, I was scribbling away.... not exactly "filling pages" yet, but writing SOMETHING. It's more than I've done in a long time.
The book is written in a style that makes sense and leaves me wanting to try out the ideas, to see if they WILL work for me.
Overall, I find it a great and fun book to work with.
Get! See! Do!  Aug 14, 2001
I have shelves and shelves of books on writer's techniques, the writer's life, writer's dreams, writer's habits, overcoming writer's block, etc., etc., etc. They are on my shelves because after I read them, that's where I put them. Creativity Rules! does not share space with those books. It's on my desk next to my writing spiral. It's like a basic fiction writing class in which the author speaks in a soothing voice--low and encouraging. Each tiny lesson builds on the tiny lesson before it, and before you know it, you've got some ideas and then a sentence or two and then - what's this? - a story. If you've been dissatisfied with other how-to books, give this one a try. You'll be writing before you know what hit you.
