Did you ever get stuck when wanting to write? Then 1,100 Ways to Write Your Story: Writing Prompts to Fit Every Need by James Mascia might be a good book to have at home. The writing prompts inside this book are conveniently put into a good selection of chapters, so no matter whether you want to write a crazy science fiction story, a romantic novel, or a short story about an absurd encounter, you will find some interesting prompts within the pages of this collection.

I enjoyed randomly browsing through 1,100 Ways to Write Your Story: Writing Prompts to Fit Every Need once I had made myself familiar with how the book works. It is not the kind of book you read from cover to cover. You pick out the chapter you need, and then look at it, and pick a writing prompt you find interesting - or if you want to challenge yourself, you open a page in that chapter, close your eyes, and randomly pick one prompt with your finger, and then use it!

I loved the way the book was organized and how there was such a variety of different prompts - from a first sentence to quotes you should use for a story; from finishing a thought to thinking about how very different characters could meet. The prompts in this collection are so creative that it is hard not to be inspired by them! I would recommend this book to all writers who sometimes need a little push to get started.
