I often set authors tasks to write about shoes - what are their favourite pair and why, what shoes would their characters wear, shoe memories etc. The feedback I always get is that they're extremely excited about the writing 'challenge'.
As I've enjoyed reading them, I thought I 'd store them in a place that is easy to find. One day, I might even get round to adding my own shoe memory...although I have done a post about writing a novel....
Catherine Ryan Howard - Flip Flops - a love story
Talli Roland - The Freedom Shoes
Mel Sherratt - Writing a novel - as told in shoes
Nina Bell - What shoes would your characters wear in THE EMPTY NESTERS
Veronica Henry - These boots were made for walking
Alison Pick - Shoe memories
