I was fortunate indeed to have the opportunity to read and review Nina Amir’s wonderful workbook/guide Creative Visualization for Writers. The subtitle really does explain the book well: “An Interactive Guide for Bringing Your Book Ideas – and Writing Career – To Life.
In five detailed, practical sections, Nina leads us through a series of creative exercises to learn more about ourselves, our vision, our goals, creativity and focus. The book is filled with exercises that encourage us not only to answer questions but to draw and colour.
Nina encourages us to choose our own starting point – to choose what area of our writing life we need to focus on first.
It was interesting to see how both sides of our brain really will improve our writing and creativity.
Nina also encourages us to commit 40 days to the practice of creative visualization. I have started and already I am seeing the benefit in my writing. The Inner Critic is being tamed and I am allowing myself to dream bigger and harder.
I have a “Reviewer’s PDF” but I will definitely buy my own copy – to better delve into all the sections of the book in more detail and colour.
I highly recommend Nina Amir’s book Creative Visualization for Writers.

Meet The Author: Nina Amir
Nina Amir started as a journalist. She has a BA in magazine journalism with a concentration in psychology. After working as an editor and writer for a variety of regional magazines, a national corporation in New York City, and a small consulting firm, she started my own freelance writing and design business.
Working on other writers’ manuscripts sparked her desire to write a book of on topics she felt passionate about: personal development and practical spirituality. More than publishing a book, she wanted to build a business around those books.
Setting out to learn all she could about the publishing industry she got involved with the San Francisco Writer’s Conference and started the Write Nonfiction in November Challenge (now known as National Nonfiction Writing Month). In April 2012, her first book How to Blog a Book was published, became an Amazon bestseller almost immediately, and has remained one ever since. The Author Training Manual was published by Writer’s Digest Books just two years later and was a bestseller before any books passed through the register on Amazon. In addition she’s self-published several more ebooks, all of which have made it onto the Amazon Top 100 right away. In fact, she’s had as many as four books on one Amazon Top 100 list at the same time!
