Writing: Ideas and Inspirations

By Colin Garrow

General non-fiction | Paperback, eBook


As most successful writers will tell you, one of the hardest things about writing is getting started. In this collection of articles, Writer, Musician, Hermit, Pie-Maker and Time-Traveller Colin Garrow explores ways of generating ideas, creating characters and developing stories. Using examples from his own stories, novels and stage plays, he'll show you what to do and what not to do...



Colin Garrow wrote his first novel at the age of 16. Admittedly, it was only four pages long, didn’t have an actual ending and was probably the worst story ever written, but the creative spark was there and he’s been trying to be a writer ever since. Colin studied Drama at the University of Northumbria, and also has a Post Grad Diploma in Community Education. He was a founder and Artistic Director of WAC Theatre (The Writers and Actors Collaboration Theatre Company) in Aberdeen until the company folded in 2011. Rehearsal videos of some of his plays can be found on YouTube (The Body in the Bag, Towards the Inevitability of Catastrophe, No Phones on Planet Pluto etc). Although theatre and writing stage plays took up quite a few years of his life, Colin has also written several short stories, some of which have appeared in literary mags (SN Review, Flash Fiction Magazine, Flash Flood, Word Bohemia, Every Day Fiction, The Grind, A3 Review, 1,000 Words, Inkapture, Scribble Magazine…). He currently lives in a humble cottage in North East Scotland where he writes novels, plays, stories, poems and the occasional song. He also makes rather nice cakes.
