The book is a compilation of articles I wrote for my daily blog on Facebook. The focal point is the life of the everyday, beaten-down writer and what it takes to be a writer facing the ordinary adversities of the craft. I don’t try to sugarcoat anything; instead, I attempt to let you know what it means to be a functioning writer who struggles for each word, and struggles with the lack of financial and commercial success. How does the ordinary writer who works at a mundane job by day and writes by night hold it together? How do they continue to be productive? How do they continue to inspire themselves in a world that doesn’t care? How do they keep themselves from becoming bored? All of this is explored in the articles contained in this small book on the creative writing process. I hope it can act as an inside look to all those interested in the subject or working in the field.

The history of formal calligraphy has been thoroughly documented, and the demise of what people see as beautiful handwriting is frequently deplored, but the details of the teaching of this skill during this century have gone almost unrecorded. The main purpose of this book is to create a historical record, however, techniques are illustrated that may be useful for teachers today, while the ever-changing views of the stylists provide examples, as well as a warning, to those who plan for the future.

So what's middle age anyway except a state of mind that some struggle to get through and overcome. Here's a collection of poems that deals with the everything that come with it. The book opens with: STRUMMING THROUGH MIDDLE AGE: Strumming as in humming, humming as in thumbing, thumbing as in reclining through life without the will to sit up. Passing shapes, passing figures, stick figures, strumming by, running by. Running? Really running, not strumming. Man on your left, lady on your right, running. Gone today, gone tomorrow. Whose strumming now? Me, you, him? Whose humming, me, you, him? Whose doing anything? Me, you, him? Who cares, don't care, fail to care. So strumming, running, humming, strumming, through, life, and, failing to care, bare, or witness the stare, failing to care and strumming.

The Burning Cauldron & Working Towards Death are two essays that philosophically delve into the inner world of one character's contorted thoughts. Here are a few excerpts: ....What's this book about? Not into judgment even based on scientific observation. Anyway, not sure what anything is or is supposed to be. Just know that the book is not an entertaining story of between two hundred and a thousand pages that is only a cracked mirror held up to the human soul and found wanting. The book is just a string of words that seek to instruct, to lead, to influence and take you into the world of false illusions. The genre used? Philosophy, history, sociology, autobiography and everything in between. The moral of the story then, the need to define leads us only to confine. ....What do I care about appearances anymore? At my age, it doesn't matter. Who the hell are they to judge? It's all passing. You die. I die. Appearances die. Simple. We all know that, yet cling to the inanity of trying to please and setting value by their values. ....Defining self. Long winded. Defining self more. Oblivious, not aware of the outside world of adults. Me, aware of sensation only, relating only to what I can touch and feel; biological necessities. Adults betray me. Too serious; don't enjoy themselves; always worrying about money. Kids are different. No constraints or hidden thoughts or meanings. Autobiography right there. ....Love the concept of wishing. It's the idea of creation of a world all your own. How many hours have I spent alone wishing an ideal into existence. You can shape the world the way you want it. You are what you think and keep others out. You are the great gatekeeper. Thus, the negative, the cruel, the hurtful can be banished. ....It's been written millions of times by other writers, but so what, here it is. Must I live my life to avoid what's been done previous to my birth. Should I stop eating and defecating because it has been done trillions of times before by others? No. My motto then, do as you wish, wish as you do.

'A FINE ENGROSSING, SYMPATHETIC STUDY OF SASSOON' - THE TIMESWith two collections of his verse written during the First World War, Siegfried Sassoon established himself as among the greatest of the war poets. Beyond that, the accounts he left of his service with the Royal Welch Fusiliers on the Western Front, beginning with Memoirs of a Fox-Hunting Man in 1928, rank perhaps as highly as his poetry, and have done much to shape our modern perception of that war. His is, and remains, one of the most significant voices of his generation - and arguably the most eloquent.As an infantry officer, Sassoon's courage won him the Military Cross (and a recommendation for the VC) for rescuing men under fire, while his boldness in action earned him the nickname 'Mad Jack'; he was also wounded several times, once seriously. As the war dragged on, however, he came to see it as a cynical exercise, leading him to write an anti-war letter to The Times, and to tear the ribbon of his MC from his tunic and throw it into the River Mersey. Alarmed, the authorities sent him to a hospital for shell-shocked officers in Scotland, where he came under the care of the leading psychoanalyst Dr W. H. R. Rivers, and met and befriended a young officer of the Manchester Regiment named Wilfred Owen. Although Sassoon returned to active service, his hatred for the war remained, and by the time of the Armistice in 1918 he had declared himself a pacifist.John Stuart Roberts's widely praised biography is a gripping account of a complex man who was at once a product of the establishment and one of its most passionate critics; a war hero and a pacifist who, although a towering literary figure, refused to align himself with any particular movement.Written with a clarity and directness that would have pleased the poet himself, this is a biography that looks beyond the common perception of Sassoon as only a war poet to reveal the man in full. It is a book that any admirer of Siegfried Sassoon, or anyone who wishes to know more about this enigmatic yet brilliant figure, will cherish.'A MAGNIFICENT BOOK...

Design is one of the most rapidly changing fields in the art world, as professionals, students, and teachers must reckon with new technologies before the older versions have much time to collect dust. In The Designer, Rosemary Sassoon surveys fifty years of change in the world of design, evaluating the skills that have been lost, how new techniques affect everyday work, and how training methods prepare students for employment. This indispensable volume reveals how design is both an art and a skill—one with a rich past and momentous relevance for the future. Along the way, Sassoon traces the fascinating trajectory of her own career, from its beginning at art school and an early apprenticeship to her work as an established professional, with advice for designers at every stage of their own development. Weaving together biography and career advice, theory and practice, The Designer provides a unique history of the art form and looks ahead to an age of ever-changing attitudes to drawing, aesthetics, and artistic practice.
