Writers and would-be writers often complain about writer’s block or not being able to think of ideas, but a new book from Smink Works Books has the answer. A Year of Writing Inspiration: A prompt a day for the creative writer
provides 365 writing exercises so the writer can be creative and get inspiration on a daily basis.
The idea is that the writer takes a journal and a pen and writes for 15-20 minutes based on the writing prompts in the book.
The book’s author, Suzanne Male, is Smink Works Books publisher and co-founder of the Writers’ Resource Centre. She has been a journalist, writer and editor for 20 years. She says the book has been designed to encourage inspiration and provoke creativity. “It’s a quintessential truth that the more you write, the more inspiration you get,” she says. “It means we are focusing on writing and ideas every day, and if that is where our focus lies, then we’ll be cultivating creativity.”
The book contains diverse writing exercises ranging from photographs to prompt stories, to five distinct words to include in an opening paragraph, to an invite to imagine you have pognophobia.
Now out from Smink Works Books as an e-book (PDF format, instant download).
Out in paperback from February 1, 2009.
