Prompts for Fiction Writers
Lulu.com, 2004 - 95 pages
For a writer, staring at a blank page, or screen, can be like your feet if you step out in the snow barefoot - frozen! This book of prompts can help unfreeze your creativity by suggesting a line or an idea for your muse to work on until it thaws out enough to write what you need it too. The bonus for fiction writers is that any of these prompts could actually give you a new dimension or idea to add to your work in progress! Separated into four sections, "Writing Prompts for Fiction Writers" gives suggested writing on three of the major disciplines in fiction writing - namely character, setting, and dialogue - and finishes with a section of idea seeds, general story line ideas for your own muse to mull over. In all, the book contains 85 prompts, a character profile sheet (to create characters to work through the exercises with should you not have a novel in progress when you begin), and a brief overview/introduction to each section.
