I thought this book was interesting. It is filled with writing prompts and then, responses to these writing prompts. From pictures to texts, these writing prompts were all over the place for they had great variety. I really enjoyed the prompts and the responses were okay. Many of the responses felt off for me, and I just didn’t care for them. There were a few that I really enjoyed and they were very creative. The book is about promoting creativity and that they did. I really liked the idea behind using picture prompts and writing a response based on the picture. The pictures they included in this book consisted of nature scenes, faces, and drawings. The writing prompts were creative and included: parts of poems, the beginning of a sentence, a conversation, a scenario, and situations similar to these.
These were a few of my favorites: You’re visiting a distant relative who lives in an old Victorian house. While everyone is downstairs, you sneak away and go upstairs and come across a loose floorboard. You inspect it, the board comes up, and inside it you find….. “I have everything I needed inside my pockets: twenty-five dollars, Chapstick, a map and …………………….” “create something that includes a tree looking out of place.” I remember………..for 5 minutes write down everything you can remember- good and bad memories, funny memories, anything. Then, pick one and write about it.
I liked the variety inside this book, some ideas were more creative than others but their ideas were worth pondering over. Their ideas might inspire you/me to create some great writing prompts yourself/ourselves. This is a fun writing tool.
