This is a wonderful book of prompts accompanying the Story a Day challenge that begins on 1st May. I undertook the challenge for the first time last year and was amazed at the creativity it inspired in me. The pressure to write every day forces you to think about characters and situations and soon a story has emerged. The prompts are great and varied, some short (100 words or a tweet) while others look for something longer, which can be a real challenge. At the end of the month you have a stock of stories that can be worked on further and polished. From the stories I wrote last year I’ve used a number and entered them in competitions. A magnificent tool for anyone looking to further their writing career.
