Ellington's E-books Keep Inspiration Affordable
Downloadable booklets for writers are both inspirational and affordable
By: Fearless Ink
She’s got a handful of ebooklets out to support writers and jump start their creativity: Sensory Perceptions, 5 in 10, and Writing Rituals. Each booklet inspires and provokes creative output. Ellington, who publishes under a half a dozen names in both fiction and non-fiction, and whose plays are produced around the world, has a well-known blog on the writing life called Ink in My Coffee. (http://
Sensory Perceptions, the most recent addition to her line, takes the writer through a seven week course working on a series of short stories. Each week focuses on a specific sense. The writer creates one story specific to the sense, and edits a longer story the builds over the seven weeks, as each sense is added. This book retails at the unbelievably reasonable price of $1.29 USD and, in terms of what the writer gets out of it, worth several hundred times the purchase price.
5 in 10: Create 5 Short Stories in Ten Weeks is another steal, at FIFTY CENTS! This booklet takes the writer on a course of ten weeks’ worth of creating five short stories or a chunk of a novel, using odd, hidden gems found hidden on the newswires for inspiration. Again, the content is worth many times the price.
The final ebooklet, Writing Rituals: Ideas to Support Creativity (appearing under the Cerridwen Iris Shea name), walks the writer through a series of rituals dealing with everything from moving past writer’s block to sending it out. It’s only THIRTY NINE CENTS. This is not a misprint.
For those who attempt National Novel Writing Month, she offers a free download, 30 Tips for 30 Days Kick Start Your Novel and Get Out of Your Own Way. “Nano is free to participants, so I wasn’t about to charge for a handbook on surviving it!” Ellington grins. This lifeline for Nano participants will be available for a limited time via a link on Ellington’s website: http://www.devonellingtonwork.com/
