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 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.
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.
