Morgen Bailey's Writing Blog (book info)
The ‘365-Day Writer’s Block Workbook (Volume 1)‘ contains over a thousand sentence starts, three per day, with writing tips at the end of each week to motivate and inspire, providing kick-starts to avoid the dreaded ‘writer’s block’.
Useful for any writer at any level, whether they have 10 minutes or 10 hours, to start a new project. Also an ideal tool for writing groups.
With a combination of six first-person, six second-person, six third-person and three non-specific point of view starts per week, there are plenty to choose from.
Beginning at ‘Day 1’ this book has been designed to be started at any time of the year, and regardless of whether the sentences are used in order or not.
With a choice of three per day a writer can select one, two or all and see where it leads them.
DAY 6 (third person)
Ella refused to budge…
As Jason repeated the line…
Richard grabbed the keys to…
DAY 7 (you can use these with any point of view)
Not realising that the garden fork was directly above…
“Yeah, it’s easy to say that now”…
Getting more and more desperate…
TIP OF THE WEEK: An alternative for Day 1’s second sentence ‘Clasping the ticket…’ would be ‘Holding the ticket tightly…’ but I have chosen the former to avoid using an adverb (usually an ‘___ly’ word). Whilst horror / sci-fi author Stephen King is famously (perhaps I shouldn’t use that ‘ly’ word) adverse to adverbs and in most cases, they can certainly (oops, there’s another one) be avoided, don’t be afraid to use them. Although I have chosen not to in this instance, they can work well, just bear in mind that if replacing the adverb loses a word, the story will be tighter and often better for it.
