This title features 365 days of time-tested writing exercises, prompts, and instructional quotes for the creative writer. Readers can follow the arc the exercises in the book form: breaking through blocks, going back to childhood, dreaming, discovering, changing - themes that eventually appear in all creative writing. Or they can dip into the book at whim, extracting just the exercise they need in a difficult moment.
