I received this book for free through GoodReads First Reads. I think it's a really great idea and tool to help you get past that writing block. I haven't gone through the entire book yet. That could take quite some time, as there are over 300 writing prompts. I think the prompts are a great way to get you writing, without worrying if it's good or not. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoy writing, as a hobby or career.
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
