I was prompted!
A very thorough and entertaining journey into the land of prompts! Laurel provides countless examples of emotional, hilarious, thoughtful and even cringe- worthy situations to challenge the writer. There are many interesting prompts that help you get into the mind of your character. Why, what and how would you react to unexpected situations can be applied as you create a fully realized fictional character.
I liked that the prompts covered many genres! Tapping into your childhood experiences, culture, history, humor and the unknown engages your creative flow. A lot of engaging starting points for any writer that will inspire you to write.
