CraftBook - Words Away

The term craft is commonly used to describe the making of arts and crafts. Craft can also be defined more broadly to include activities as varied as writing, engineering, design and the performing arts. Each requires an individual to posses knowledge and skills, developed through study and practice. This is something we can all achieve.

As a form of self-expression, writing can help each of us to better organise our thoughts, find greater perspective and share our ideas. The process of researching and writing about a topic, allows us to reflect more deeply upon it and can lead to new insights. As with any craft, the more we write the better our writing will also tend to become.

The articles that I write explore topics which interest me, such as arts and crafts, design and technology. Examples include; Good Design and Why Simple Is Difficult and How To Develop Your Creative Thinking Skills. If you would like to communicate with me regarding any of my articles, please use the Contact Form.

Whether you want to write fiction or non-fiction, there is considerable time and effort involved in writing, publishing, marketing and selling books.
