A fill-in book from the San Francisco Writers’ Grotto, authors of the best-selling 642 Things series.
 
Focus on a single aspect of the craft of writing with help from the San Francisco Writers’ Grotto. Writing Action kicks off with a foreword by an award-winning author and journalist Bonnie Tsui, who offers pointers for creating page-turning prose. The rest of the book consists of prompts and space to write, providing opportunities to explore how both high-stakes and low-key moments can be action-packed. Among other ideas, you’ll be asked to write an account of:
  • a highly competitive game of hopscotch 

  • an orange being peeled as if it were the last one on earth 

  • a car ride with an overly confident student driver 

  • a meal prepared by a cook who is really depressed 

  • the step-by-step process of opening a long-awaited piece of mail 

Perfectly sized to take to a café, on vacation, or on your morning commute, this book is designed for practicing your creative writing a little bit at a time.
