Something special for writers comes this way…
This is just perfect for a writer and I have ordered my copy.
We writers can be a funny old lot, scribbling notes, making sketches, writing links for research sites.
We also like to our minds to be stimulated, given ideas, offered hints, motivated, inspired, and fueled with all those thoughts only creative minds can conjure.
Electric Eclectic knows this only too well; after all we are an international alliance of authors.
Now, for the first time, Electric Eclectic has designed an Authors Journal specifically made for our often-overactive minds.
While we leave plenty of room for notetaking, sketches, and ‘random’ material, we include helpful pages on a plethora of inspirational and helpful author and writers ‘stuff.’
Order your copy today, even get extra, so you can gift them to you friends.
