I was lucky enough to have received a copy of the beautiful book – that cover is amazing, don’t you think?!?!
And so far I’ve had fun working my way through some of the many writing exercises.
After having an initial read of the first couple of chapters I opted to use the book in a dip in dip out nature. I haven’t been doing a daily exercise, but I’ve been using the prompts a couple of mornings a week when I’ve sat down and the words for my current WIP haven’t flown as easy as I would have liked. So far the exercises have been a lot of fun. And they have been far too varied to sum up in a sentence or two, which is great. I imagine that the book would suit most writers.
Below I’ve posted an example of just one of my favourite prompts so far…
And the book contains many, many more great writing exercises.
The book is good and I will continue to use it. I was delighted to take part in the blog tour and thank you for my gifted copy.
