Good Monday morning!
Can you believe how fast this year is going? It seems I’ve blinked and half the year is gone. Wasn’t March just last week?
It feels like it.
May is a rough month for me, so I’ve decided to brighten it up a little and do a giveaway!
I’d like to tell you about my latest project with editor, Rogena Mitchell-Jones who generously released this journal for Deserae (Dezi) – on the 11th anniversary of her passing.
We had a chance to get our heads together and decided to create a journal together. Writing is something I love to do but sometimes (okay a lot) I run out of stuff to write about or experience the author’s dreaded white (screen) brick wall known as writer’s block.
What if we could combine the two – a journal with writing prompts to help break through the wall?
Well we did it!
“Do you like to journal?
Do you like to write stories?
Are you an author who likes to use writing prompts to encourage your creativity? This book might be for you!
Clever, thought-provoking prompts from award-winning author, Yvonne Heidt and put together in the style of our bestselling RMJ Journals. College-rule on absorbent paper for you to write your words based on each prompt. This journal should keep you busy for a bit.
EVEN if you aren’t looking for writing prompts, this journal is set up as our other journals are–with plenty of space to write your own stories, poems, lists…however you like to use your journals. The cover is gorgeous and the interior inspirational.”
“Some prompts are funny, some are thought provoking, and
some are damn right therapeutic!” –Yvonne
Inside intro letter from me!
It happens to all of us.
That epiphany, an idea you get that you’re so excited about, your fingers tingle, and you reach for paper and pen or maybe the nearest electronic device.
Excitement sends shivers skittering across your scalp, your eyes open wide, and you laugh with joy as you create your characters and storyline.
Or maybe, you’re like me and have the attention span of a gnat on crack.
Could be you want to write, have told yourself repeatedly you would…
That urge gets stronger year after year, you finally sit down, put your fingers on the keyboard, and write the first couple of scenes you’ve had in the back of your mind.
Like so many writers, myself included, have a time where you’re just staring at that damn white page…
You run out of words.
If this hasn’t happened to you – I’m ecstatic for you!
This journal is yours for the fun of it.
If you just want an interesting Journal, this book is for you.
If you want to hone your craft or need a kick start–this journal is for you.
Let it help you step out of your slump and let your creativity fly with these short prompts, geared to take somebody out of their comfort zone, and try something new.
Let your creativity fly and spark your inspiration. Break through that blank page as if you were kicking down a wall.Be honest with yourself and have fun with it!
We hope you capture the muse and these writing prompts help you in doing so. More importantly, we hope we made you smile.
Prompts included are related to the chapters: Walk This Way, OMG This Happened, Take A Walk, Write A Letter, Imagine, and What If…
