A Writer’s Book of Days

I love this book. My friend Martha (who is publishing like crazy as Em Woods) told me about it. I’ve used Judy Reeves writing prompts before, especially for teaching, but what I love about this book is the daily prompt–one for each day of an entire year. With all the revision I’ve been doing, I find I miss generating new writing. And that’s where Judy comes in. Another of my writing resolutions for 2011 is to write in my notebook every morning first thing using Judy’s Book of Days.

Posted In,


  1. I love her book. One of the things that fell by the wayside in the last month or so was writing to that prompt…and I’m definitely picking it back up. I miss it.


  2. I feel guilty pleasure writing freely like that. If it’s not something with a novel, it’s not “really” writing, or so the bitchy inner critic says. I’m ignoring her and giving up the guilt, too. And of course, sometimes that early morning writing leads to a good story idea.
