Pumping Your Muse is a 136-page non
-fiction, self-help writer’s manual
 that is conveniently available in
both electronic and print format. T
he hardcopy is coil-bound – perfect
 for an inviting workbook.

Published just recently in June 200
5, this book belongs on every write
r’s reference bookshelf. Donna Sund
blad’s goal for her manual has cert
ainly been met, as Pumping Your Mus
e is able to stretch the readers’ c
reativity beyond their normal limit
s by developing skills and focusing
 creative energies in new direction
s.

The author focuses on the ability t
o build worlds through a variety of
 exercises including reflections, p
erspectives, balance, using multipl
e sensory tools and expanding think
ing patterns. Readers will learn ab
out tracking implements such as car
ds, journals and maps that help dev
elop a detailed world for the reade
r and make the book a whole experie
nce.

Following every exercise like a hom
e-school class will take several we
eks and will definitely improve cre
ative writing skills. Pumping Your
Muse could also be used as a refres
her course, a tool during the proof
reading processes of a manuscript,
or to get past writer’s block.

Donna Sundblad keeps the continuity
 flowing at an interesting pace and
 has allowed space for notes at the
 end of every chapter. Her useful m
anual also includes a number of exc
ellent writer’s resource websites.

I recommend that readers review the
 entire manual and then return to c
hapter one before they actually beg
in the program. In this way, the re
ader will be more familiar with the
 reasons and goals for each exercis
e. I’ve been anticipating my return
 to chapter one since I began the r
eviewing process of this book and h
ave no doubt that my skills will be
 improved because of the exercises
in this manual.
