About the Book

Your writer's notebook can electrify your writing. But if you have not accumulated "commonplace books" over forty years, this one, from a writer with over 90 publications, may help. It offers about 5,000 entries, divided into categories valuable to writers. This offers "the best bits" of four decades of a writer's notebooks. Other sources such as the Google global zeitgeist 2013 were also used. The result is 55 categories useful to writers (the author has special skill in such analysis). It is a modern-day "cabinet of curiosities" that can add fire to any writing.This cornucopia is fresh. Entries offer a delightful browse: a thrilling cocktail including thought-provoking gems. Examples are: "G'day." "gloopy" "Here be dragons." "She be bitch woman." "In the mist, the sky wept." "solid, stocky, a bruiser - but rich." "Your wedding ring and you are stardust." "Just in case, she put on her new black knickers." "All shall be well ... and all manner of thing shall be well." A bonus is advice especially for writers aspiring to their first publication. But experienced authors could also benefit. Practical tips abound. Topics include finding time and ideas, non-fiction articles and books, short stories, novels and poetry.
About the Author: Malcolm E Brown has over 90 publications. They span a remarkable range. He is a columnist and award-winning article writer. Publications include scientific papers, short stories and a novel. Acclaim for articles, his main output, includes "exceptionally elegant" and "He paints a superb picture." He can do so because he is something of a polymath. A retired pharmacist, MRPharmS and BA, he also has master and doctorate degrees in natural and social scientific research. That is extremely unusual. He has worked as an industrial production manager and in senior positions in the British National Health Service (NHS). As Director of Pharmacy and Civil Emergency Planning at a district general hospital, he liaised with blue light services. Later, as a consultant, he trained the "entire" UK sales force of a major international company on selling medicines to the NHS. He certified batches of medicines as an EU Qualified Person (QP): a "quasi-governmental" role. Several licences, for human, animal and investigational medicinal products, named him. He audited and advised in several countries. The keynote speaker at an international multidisciplinary conference at The Hague, his brief was to stimulate thinking "outside the box." He delights in his reputation as a quirky commentator and interpreter of worlds. He is widely travelled and an experienced mentor.
