712 More Things To Write About

I’m not good at Christmas shopping. The more I walk around looking for things to buy for other people, the more things I find to buy for myself. 712 More Things to Write About

The latest was a book I found in Waterstones (and it’s also available on Amazon).

712 More Things to Write About is full of ideas to help when that well of inspiration is empty. It’s put together by the San Francisco Writers’ Grotto and is in a large paperback journal format with room to write beneath each prompt. There are things like, ‘You look out the window and discover a body floating face down in your pool’ and ‘Write a haiku about your underwear’. The prompts in this book will keep any writer going well past the end of 2017. And prompts are often just what I need!

So, I bought the book and gave it to my husband to wrap up for me. Roll on Christmas when I can get it back in my greedy mitts again!

    Oh Sally, I can so identify with your dilemma, I’m doing the same thing! My excuse is, I don’t usually go around the shops. So when I do, I see all these lovely things.
    Now that book you mention sounds interesting…

      Glad I’m not the only one, Maria. And the book is interesting … but it’s been whisked away from me now for Christmas.

    A shortage of ideas has never been my problem. Actually sometimes I think I’d prefer to have less of them as then I wouldn’t waste time deciding which one to tackle first.

      Perhaps you could sell some to the rest of us?!
