Robin Etherington‘s How to THINK when you WRITE book has already smashed its target on Kickstarter, but if you haven’t already backed it, or got your hands on copies of his brother Lorenzo’s How to THINK when you DRAW books, this is your chance to do so.

How to THINK when you WRITE is a 200 page full colour hardback book, gathering together two years of Robin’s writing tutorials, also available, as ever, free to read online, tackling an enormous range of subjects.

Created as a companion to brother Lorenzo’s record-breaking How to THINK when you DRAW series, the vast array of subjects are designed to benefit creators of all skill levels, from writers wrangling their first plot to the seasoned scribe.

This is the first time the collection has been available for purchase and has launched exclusively and is, currently, only available on Kickstarter.
