I think that all what one can say of this book after reading it is just that: it is ok. I am not familiar with Amy Peters but if I judge by this project, her fiction should not be very enticing, if there is any. So she takes a full year and to each day of the 52 weeks she assigns an 'aspect', as she calls them, related to literature and literary writing. I liked the Mondays ("Writers on Writing"), the Tuesdays ("Motivation [to write]"), the Thursdays ("Editing") and the Saturdays ("Books to read ...more

I've only had this book for a couple of weeks, but I dig the short, daily prompts, author bios, motovational bits and so on. It is also quite a nice looking book, and makes a great addition to any writer's desk.

Could anyone ever actually "finish" this book? With fifty two book recommendations, fifty two writing prompts, and fifty two writing "classes," there's a lot more packed into this daily guide than you might expect. The format is a bit more than a Word-of-the-Day for writers and a bit less than a full blown writer's handbook; following all of its potential tangents, books and writers to investigate, and story ideas might take a writer several years, let alone the supposed one set aside for this d ...more

I admit- I cheated on the intent of this book. I read it cover to cover over the course of a few days...but it was a guilty pleasure! I will certainly go back and attack each daily devotional one day at a time. I love the feel of the cover, the heavy weight of the paper, and the bound ribbon book mark is a splendid touch. It's divided equally into seven categories depending on the day of the week, of which "Motivation" was my favorite. This is one book which I will keep permanently on my desk.

I love this book. It's like Our Daily Bread and it's very manageable--something I can easily work into my day without feeling too dumb for it, since it is only a couple of paragraphs.

Because of this book 99.9% of the time I'm found with something to write on and/or to write with. It annoys my parents, but it comes in handy sometimes.

Great book for writers. I think it is one of those must have books.
Jun 24, 2014 Heather rated it really liked it
A good book with lots of information and some good prompts, but not what I was hoping for. Each day is something new but in a pattern. Many of the quotes I had heard before, but some of the prompts almost seemed useless in my mind. I get they are to spark creativity, but there is a limit. Like asking someone to write a sonnet. Even with directions many aren't able to. And some of us can't rhyme for anything. Again, a good book, but not something overly helpful for me.

This book is a great way to keep your writing muscle moving - full of writing prompts and things to keep you motivated to write! The only criticism I have is that it's meant to do one per day for a year, but I find that to be unrealistic, as very little people actually have the time.

A wonderful daily look into the writing life. Though it's set up to be read one day at a time, I often found myself reading a week or two worth of tips and motivations.

Love it! Bummer I borrowed it at the library and am desperately looking to buy a copy for myself. Any writer should have a copy in their bookshelf.
