There's a lot to like about this book. It's a year's worth of interesting journal prompts. Each page starts with an interesting quote from an author, followed by one or several prompts related to the quote. I suggest writing in the book on the pages that have room. It will make it more interesting to go back and see what you thought. The full review is on my blog: http://wp.me/p2H1i-2Rt

“Among the few consolations of what has been called writer’s block is the assurance that, so long as one has it, one is, indeed, a writer. Of course, the longer it goes the more it resembles, and risks being mistaken for, proctologist’s block, real estate agent’s block, and other obstructions ordinaire. — THOMAS LYNCH” 0 likes
