This is something a little bit different for review on my blog today! While it’s not my usual crime fiction it is a book that’s well worth a look at if you are an inspiring writer or if you just want to get back into the writing habit or do a little bit of dabbling!
Thanks to the author and Sarah over at Bitsaboutbooks for inviting me onto the tour.
Before I share my thoughts, here’s what the product blurb says:
Over a thousand sentence starts, three per day, with writing tips at the end of each week to motivate and inspire, providing kick-starts to avoid the dreaded ‘writer’s block’. Useful for any writer at any level, whether they have 10 minutes or 10 hours, to start a new project. Also an ideal tool for writing groups.
With a combination of six first-person, six second-person, six third-person and three non-specific point of view starts per week, there are plenty to choose from. Beginning at ‘Day 1’ this book has been designed to be started at any time of the year, and regardless of whether the sentences are used in order or not. With a choice of three per day a writer can select one, two or all and see where it leads them.
Well I don’t know about you but my brain can go into a bit of a freeze at a blank page sitting in front of me! All of a sudden I don’t know what to write, I can’t think of any words, hell sometimes I think I don’t even know any words!
With three sentence starts for each day there is definitely going to be something there to grab your attention! It’s not just sentence starters though, there are tips to help you write from different points of view. Fabulous POV explanations are provided as well as tips in the use of tenses in writing.
At the end of each week there is a section with tip of the week providing the writer with a whole host of invaluable tips to help you along on your writing journey.
Of course you are not compelled to follow each suggestion to the letter/POV or indeed tense. These are merely starting blocks to get those creative juices flowing. I really enjoy using tools like this for myself and also with some of the groups I run at work (using writing as a means of exploring self advocacy and confidence building). They are a great tool for people of all abilities and make for a really inclusive facilitator method.
A great tool to kick start your writing journey!
