Becoming a Writer Author:Dorothea Brande A reissue of a classic work published in 1934 on writing and the creative process, Becoming A Writer, recaptures the excitement of Dorothea Brande's creative writing classroom of the 1920's. Decades before brain research "discovered" the role of the right and left brain in all human endeavor, Dorothea Brande was teaching students how to see agai... more »n, how to hold their minds still, how to call forth the inner writer.
She had her novice writers note the effects of everything in their environment on their writing. She showed them how to harness the unconscious, how to fall into the "artistic coma," then how to re-emerge and be their own critics.
Becoming a Writer is Dorothea Brande's legacy to all those who have ever wanted to express their ideas in written form. A sound, practical, inspirational, and charming approach to writing, it fulfills on the expectation in her introduction: "This book, I believe, will be unique....I think there is such a magic and that it is teachable. This book is all about the writer's magic."
Dorothea Brande was also the author of Wake Up and Live! now in its 34th printing, with over one million copies sold.« less
