DIY Chick Lit AND DIY Writing Retreat by Alicia de los Reyes
Alicia has TWO sets of e-books for some lucky readers anywhere in the world!
Originally published in 2013 as The Chick Lit Cookbook, this fun, cupcake-themed writer’s road map has been updated as part of acclaimed writing teacher Alicia de los Reyes’ DIY writing series. DIY Chick Lit will take you from start to finish of your first draft in just 13 chapters, each with a short exercise that will get you writing now.
DIY Chick Lit will prove to you that writing a novel can be fun and easy — it’s just like baking cupcakes!
Written by the acclaimed author of DIY Chick Lit, this fun guide is sure to motivate writers at every stage, from aspiring authors to experienced novelists. Time to write alternates with fun activities that will energize you and keep you going. A worksheet guides you to reflect on your writing process and set goals for when you return home. There are even (super easy) recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
